Never doubt that a small group of THOUGHTFUL, COMMITTED citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.— Margaret Mead.
Hello readers! My name is Saira Hassan and I am A-level Religion and Philosophy Lecturer. I will be starting my second year of teaching this September and have decided to start this blog alongside.
Aside to teaching, I enjoy reading – particularly anything history related, whether that be South Asian history, Islamic history or history in general! (I had a short spell teaching GCSE History). I am currently broadening my understanding of mental health, particularly how this affects young people, and learning new ways to manage anxiety – I also share these with my students to help them understand that everyone experiences some level of anxiety, and that there is support available.
My most recent adventure has been joining the gym – something I started in order to find new ways to become more productive in the mornings and relax and unwind in the evenings.
Aside to all of this, I enjoy spending time with my family, drinking tea (TEA-LOVER!) and catching up with my friends. I have also had a short spell of travelling to a few countries and hope to increase this in the future!
This blog will be a space to share my journey of being a teacher with you all. I will be posting again soon, so stay tuned for more. Subscribe below to get notified when I post new updates.
