Fatima joined The York School Mathematics department in 2004. She has taught Grade 7, 8, 9 and 10 MYP math, Grade 11 IB Standard and Studies math, and Grade 12 IB Standard math which involves Data Management and Calculus. She endeavours to make her classroom one in which all of her students have the opportunity to succeed and she’s never afraid to have a little fun – whether it is a little snapping or quadratic aerobics, math class is rarely dull.
In addition to teaching Mathematics, Fatima has two other passions – coaching basketball and working with the House Council. She gets the opportunity to support teamwork and fair play as well as student responsibility, spirit and leadership.
She has earned several degrees over her own educational career – an Honours Bachelor of Science Degree from McMaster University, a Bachelor of Education from Queen’s University and an Honours Specialist in Mathematics at OISE/UT. Currently, Fatima is working part-time on her Master of Arts degree and completely understands the challenges of working and attending school.
Tanzania Service Trip
I can’t even begin to tell you how fortunate and excited I am to be going on this service trip to Tanzania with the students that have volunteered to go. They are some of the best individuals I could have hoped to work with! Our adventure will take us to Moshi Tanzania (close to Arusha which is where my father was born) where we will be volunteering our time at the Amani Children’s Home. I can’t wait for this because I know my students will have the opportunity to work on various projects including helping to teach English to the Amani kids, run activities, experience a day in the life at an IB school in another part of the world as well as several work projects. After that, we head on safari – cheetahs and lions…I’m keeping a close eye out for you
