SECOND GRADE 2022-2023

"The most complete gift of God is a life based on knowledge." Imam Ali AS.


Assalam O Aliakum Respected Parents,

Welcome to Second Grade. I am very excited to be your child's teacher this year. I joined R.I.S.E. with 9 years of teaching experience as well as a Master's in Psychology. Now, I have been part of the R.I.S.E family for four years.

I believe that a classroom should be a safe, caring environment where every child can grow and blossom. My goal as a teacher is to facilitate that process and help my students learn by doing, exploring, and solving problems. My guiding lights are the teachings of the Holy Quran while following the footsteps of our Prophets and Imams.

Feel free to contact me at any time if there is a question or situation you would like to discuss at

I look forward to seeing new and old faces, Insha'Allah!!!

With Duas,

Kanwal Shah.
