After graduating from The University of Sheffield with a Master’s Degree in Nano Materials Engineering, I decided to pursue a career in teaching by joining one of the leading providers of PGCE in the UK, The University of Leeds, to mark the beginning of my journey as a qualified Science/ Physics teacher. I am originally from Iran and moved to the UK in order to pursue my education in Nanoparticles and NanoEngineering, something that I am very passionate about.
My area of interest is in research and development of nanorobots using nanomaterials to administer drugs and to treat cancer. I’m also interested in research in green energy and replacing fossil fuels used in the automotive industries, minimising their environmental impact. Something that I would like to contribute to the school is encouraging students to become more involved in the research and development of projects that can shape the future world into a green and economically sustainable environment. These can lead to a range of exciting opportunities for them; one of the projects I ran with a previous EPQ student helped him secure an internship at Tesla, a unique opportunity in the history of the company, as it was awarded to an undergraduate student.
Working for international colleges and universities around the world has given me the opportunity to gain invaluable experiences. My job as an educator allowed me to work with some outstanding teachers and meet and learn from wonderful parents and pupils alike. Prior to moving to Dubai three years ago, I lived and worked in Qatar for four years, teaching IGCSE and A level Physics in one of the Qatar Petroleum schools. Since moving to Dubai, I have taught a range of curriculums: GCSE, Edexcel IGCSE, A Level and IBDP Physics. Teaching different curriculums has equipped me with a vast range of knowledge and skills that can be utilised in the development of our students, hoping to guide them in the right direction to succeed in their chosen areas. The highlight of my work in Dubai has to be the success of my GCSE and A Level students achieving or exceeding their predicted grades.
