About Zahida

My name is Zahida A. I came from Afghanistan in 2008, and since 2009, I have been teaching, Dari/Persian Language in two prestigious institutions in the United States, FSI and DLS. In Afghanistan, I was director of Fifth Political department at the Foreign Ministry of Afghanistan.
When I started working at FSI, I did not have extensive experience in teaching. Therefore I had to work very hard be a good teacher. Fortunately, at FSI every two weeks there were staff development sessions for teachers to advance their teaching knowledge and technique, including the use of technology. I attended three courses which were taught by the most incredible linguist professors, every two Wednesdays. These courses helped me be the kind of teacher I wanted to be.

I always try to develop my teaching strategies according to the objectives and need of my students. Mostly, the combination of structural, functional and interactive methods. I use and try to use the PPP methodology for enhancing my students' language knowledge and skills that cover, presentation, practice and performance. By implementing these strategies my students have received excellent results in speaking, writing, reading and listening.
I received several awards during my teaching period in FSI and DLS.
