Being a first generation American, I had the opportunity to go to school and get an education unlike my mother. Watching her struggles has made me thankful for the options I have available. Education has been a very important part of my life. Today I am honored to be known as a teacher and to be a part of another child’s learning.
I have performed internships in grades Preschool through 5th. My student teaching was done in 2nd grade, providing me with a long term substituting job in the school from January, 2011-May, 2011. I was responsible for assessments, school reports, lesson plans, along with all the needs that come with a classroom.
While going to school and working, I have always had a passion for community service projects. From a young age I was involved in Girl Scouts. In Atlanta, I was project manager for a program called “Regional College Expedition.” This program allowed students of the mosque an opportunity to tour colleges and universities in the Southeast region. I was responsible for getting in touch with schools to assist us in tours. I had to book a bus for 45 high school students and 5 mentors. Currently, I am involved in the Aga Khan Foundation, raising awareness of the problems people face in third world countries. Also, I teach 4th grade Religious Education courses every weekend.
Since moving to Texas, I have been working in the preschool environment. Currently, I work at Crème de la Crème as a teacher. I find my job very rewarding, especially when the parents smile at the progress their child is making.
As of February, I started my graduate studies at Walden University. I am pursing a Master of Science in Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment.
