Elementary and Head teacher
Last Updated: 15th July 2019 (over 3 years ago)
It was with much interested that I learned that a teaching position has opened at Tenby Schools. As a 2002 a graduate of Punjab university Lahore, I can offer you solid in-service teaching experience gained at Canadian Trillinium international School, New Brunswick, Canada in Bangladesh and at Bright future international school in Doha,Qatar. I believe that both my passion for teaching and the experience I honed as a kindergarden-third- fourth-6,7,9th grade student teacher will enable me to successfully promote the Tenby Schools mission of guiding children to become active and positive contributors to their community.
My teaching experience at both urban and suburban international schools has given me an appreciation for the challenges which children in both settings face. Under the wonderful mentorship of Mr.William Hargreaves (the principal of Canadian Trillinium international) and Ms.Rosa Gonzalez(a elementary principal at CTS), I learned how to identify and respond to the various learning styles of different children, partnering enthusiastically with these teachers, parents, and the schools’ principals to create learning environments that effectively engaged participation by children from diverse cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds.
My understanding of your school is that you are dedicated to supporting the needs of an ethnically diverse population, with the ultimate goal of achieving a 100% graduation rate. Working with you to achieve these goals would be a rewarding challenge for me – I am fluent in English,Hindi,Arabic and thrive in multicultural settings. In addition to my student teaching experience, I volunteered for one year during college I worked as a summer camp counselor for two summers with programs designed to provide inner-city kids with fun academic exploration experiences.
As a teacher, I am committed to creating safe, stimulating, and supportive learning environments that empower all children to discover and take pride in their individual strengths, support their classmates, and engage in their larger community. I have passed my IELTS exam with band 7 spoken 8. I have also gain TKT certificate from British Council and to hold (K-12) and Blended Elementary/Middle/High Education(Grade 4-9). Thank you for your consideration; I would welcome a personal interview to learn more about how I could contribute to serving the needs of Tenby School’s students.
