This is my 11th year of teaching in the US and I've taught in Pakistan for 12 years, so altogether I have been teaching for 23 years. This is my first year working in Progressive high school as a language center math teacher. I have been working as an ESL teacher for a long time, and I also teach new immigrants English in my religious community center. Both of those activities bring me so much joy, especially when my students are able to communicate in English. English is also not my native language. It's the fifth langue I learned. I went through the process of learning English, and the difficulties I faced help me in guiding my students. I love traveling in the summer! So far, I have traveled only 19 countries. I have to make it to 60 before I turn 60. I am also married and have two successful daughters.
