My name is Shazia and I am originally from Pakistan. I have been teaching in different schools
for the past twenty years in primary, elementary and high schools. I have been teaching in
Chicago for the past six months.
I have a Bachelor of Education (B.Ed), a Masters in Education (M.Ed) and MBA. I feel proud
and privileged to be part of St. Zachary School because of its culture, values and the quality of
education which they transmit to the students in the school.
For me the philosophy of education is not just teaching but preparing a child for the future and to
direct and guide them so that they would be effective members of our society. As a teacher
getting to know the students is very important, as is building relationships, giving them love,
care and compassion while they are in the school so that they can unfold their hidden potential
and use their intellect, abilities and creativity to the full extent.
It’s also essential that the parents of the children in my class have a good harmonious
relationship with the teacher so that we can contribute, collaborate and cooperate together in
the development, growth and learning of the child.
