A new member of BSYs primary team
Irfana will be joining BSY in August as one of our new primary teachers.

I'm thrilled to join the British School of Yangon (BSY) community! Returning to Yangon, my mother's birthplace, adds a special personal touch to this new chapter.

BSY's international environment aligns with my passion for nurturing curious, compassionate global citizens. My husband, Faisal Shahid, a Computer Science specialist, shares my excitement about exploring this vibrant city with our family.

I graduated from the University of Manchester and completed my teacher training at Manchester Metropolitan University in 2003. Outside the classroom, I love practicing martial arts, hiking, and exploring historical sites. Recent adventures include visiting Vietnam's Ho Chi Minh City War Museum and Mangrove forests, and scaling Dragon Mountain.

For the past three years, I've taught the Cambridge Primary curriculum at Vinschool in Hanoi, Vietnam, and previously taught in London primary schools. With over ten years of experience teaching various subjects from KS3 to A-levels and BTEC courses, I'm adept at adapting to diverse learners and fostering inclusive environments.

I'm eager to meet you and your children and contribute to their educational journey at BSY. Let's embark on this adventure together!
