Mrs Akhtar

Teaching Assistant, year 4

My name is Mrs Akhtar and I was welcomed into the St. Vincent’s family in 2012. St. Vincent’s is a very encouraging, caring and joyful place where students can develop not only academically but socially as well. The reason why I feel honoured to be a  Teaching Assistant in Year 4 is because ,as I have had previous experience as an overseas trained teacher, I think that I am able to transfer my knowledge and enthusiasm to the students whilst helping out in any way I can. I am also multilingual so I can proudly communicate in languages such as French, and many more. Finally, in my spare time I enjoy reading, travelling and encountering new adventures.
