Learning Coach, Whetu

Kia Ora, Salam, Namaste, Bonjour, Hi there and Howdy!!!

It has been an exciting journey at Ormiston to contribute as a Learning coach in Whetu. I bring a vast teaching background and a rich learning experience; having taught and lived in three different continents; South Asia, North America and calling Australasia as home! I grew up in the city of Karachi, Pakistan, immigrated to the U.S.A, chose teaching as my pathway to enjoy life and finally settled here in the beautiful land of heaven on Earth; New Zealand! “Learning” to me is a life long process and is found in small and simple experiences of life. Here, at Ormiston each day opens up a mystery box for our learners to explore and unfold their potential. I enjoy those moments with them and look forward to new discoveries each day! Outside of my school life, I am an active member of my community. I love engaging in social work and making connections with people around whom we live. Diversity is a strength for me and must be respected by all. I envision to see our world to be a better place for our generations to live and thrive, by contributing our wee bit towards world peace.

This is my second year at Ormps and I am enjoying every opportunity of been engaged and interacting with every learner in Whetu. The learners and their willingness and excitement to learn makes me very proud of them. My message to every learner is to believe in themselves and they are the stars shinning brightly in Whetu.
