Salams! I'm the Kindergarten teacher at YIS. I am an Ontario certified elementary school teacher.  I completed my B.Ed at the Ontario Institute of Studies in Education, and my Honours B.A at the University of Toronto. My passion and love for teaching is grounded in a process that involves learning and growing with my students. I aim to create a structured, safe and loving classroom where my students have the opportunity to express themselves. I encourage my  students to think critically and be open to learning in a way that they feel comfortable and welcome challenges so they can continue to grow.
