Seema began her teaching career in 2008, where she worked in a diverse range of secondary schools in Aberdeen, Scotland. She then took up the position of English teacher in 2012 at a large international school in Bangkok, Thailand. Whilst working in Bangkok, Seema coordinated a popular Amnesty International extra-curricular club, and enjoyed developing her experience of teaching English Language and Literature up to IB level.
Prior to teaching, Seema worked as a widening participation officer at a university in Scotland, where she encouraged students of all backgrounds to consider degree study after they had completed their secondary school education. It was this experience of supporting and motivating young people to fulfil their academic ambitions which led Seema to switch to a career in secondary education.
Seema joined BISB in August 2016.
It’s important to Seema to set high expectations in her classes by creating a nurturing and inclusive learning environment. She encourages her students to develop a growth mindset in order to be inquisitive, creative and resilient when accomplishing new goals in their learning.
Seema has an eclectic range of interests. She has a love of photography and has enjoyed documenting her travels with her camera while living in South-east Asia. She is also an avid reader of a wide range of literature, from Japanese novels in translation to classic Victorian texts. Seema also loves yoga and practices whenever she can.
