Before training in primary education, I taught English as a foreign language in Thailand for a year. This post confirmed my desire to become a primary teacher and eventually work overseas again. After successfully completing my PGCE and achieving QTS, I started my career in London. Over the past 14 years, since qualifying, I have delivered the English National Curriculum in the UK, Colombia, China and Egypt. I am now looking forward to working with children and their families based here in Warsaw.
My interests include travel, salsa dancing, practising speaking Spanish (and hopefully Polish soon!), meeting new people, live music, reading non-fiction and watching documentaries.
In my experience students achieve what they believe they can achieve. Often their self-esteem or belief patterns dictate their outcomes. Some will take longer than others to achieve a goal, but if they believe and say they will reach it, they usually do. Of course, this requires effort too!
I see my role as a guide to independent learning. I aim to teach the students how to learn independently, and I always have high expectations of their behaviour and learning. I try to instil the belief that anyone can do anything with enough effort and practice, even if this involves numerous setbacks along the way.
WHAT THE STUDENTS SAY
Miss Naciri is nice but strict.
I like that our table and class get table points.
