Where have you lived in the world?

I was born in Karachi, Pakistan and lived in Pakistan until migrating to Canada in 2001.

What have you studied? How long have you been a teacher?

I studied at the University of Karachi and the Foundation for Montessori Education in Toronto. I've completed a Bachelor of Commerce and an AMI Montessori Diploma - Casa dei Bambini.  I have taught for 13 years.

What languages do you speak?

I speak English, Gujarati and Urdu.   

What do you like to do when you aren’t at school?

I like yoga, meditation, and being with my family and friends.  

What is something not everyone knows about you?

If you knew me really well, you would know that I love the piano but only play by ear with one hand 😊
My happiest childhood years in were spent in Casa. My mother was a Casa teacher in a different school and I’m told that two of my Great Aunts did their Casa training with Maria Montessori.
A favourite book I’m reading now is Autobiography of a Yogi.
