My name is Kesser Karim and I am currently teaching Computer Science at Safa Community School. I completed my PGCE in Secondary Computing and ICT at Manchester Metropolitan University and I am currently studying for my MSc in Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence.
I like to actively promote a positive, inclusive and aspirational ethos which enables all young people to achieve their potential as lifelong learners. I have developed a teaching style which fully embraces the dynamic curriculum set out for students and throughout my career I have gained thorough knowledge, understanding and development of all areas of the computing curriculum.
Outside of school, I enjoy reading, travelling and playing sports in particular football. I am qualified as a FA Level 1 football coach and enjoy playing or managing U12/U14 teams in my spare time. I enjoy running and have previously participated in the London and New York Marathons to raise money for charity.
I have taught Computer Science for 6 years in the UK and the UAE. I have taught a range of exam boards at both GCSE and A-level including AQA, Edexcel and Cambridge International. In my previous school, I worked as an acting Head of Department for Computer Science and helped to develop the new Computer Science curriculum across all Key Stages.
