Born and raised in Rawalpindi, Pakistan, I have been an English language learner all my life. It gives me an insight to the struggles my students go through first hand. I am a trained web designer, videographer, and digital photographer. All of these skills help me become a better teacher. I connect with my students at a personal level inorder to meet them where they start. I belive that all students can and will learn. I am also a believer of Maslow's heirarchy of needs when it comes to student engagement. Everyday is a learning opportunity for me and I try not to let it pass by.
