I’m Qamar and I currently teach Mathematics at BIS Abu Dhabi, as well as a Year 8 Form Tutor.  I was born and raised in London, a place that I always miss! 

Around ten years ago, on a rainy night in London, I had an interview for a job in a country far away.  I was offered the position at BIS Abu Dhabi and here I still am years later in a place that I can call home. 

I feel truly blessed that I get to spend most of my time with my son Aamir, aged nine.  You see, I always wanted a son so that I could play computer games with him, but I didn’t anticipate that I would lose to him all the time.  I enjoy kayaking and pool. I also enjoy following my football team Arsenal, have taken up art and I love to read. 

In my years here at BIS Abu Dhabi I have held many different roles and I have been lucky enough to see the school grow and become the wonderful place it is now.  Both my son and I love our time here and hope to be part of its exciting future!
