Head of English -Key Stage Two
"My name is Delzin Dastoor, this is my third year teaching in Year 6 at GFS. I am proud to be Head of English for KS2. It has been two years now, since I moved to Dubai, from Mumbai, India. I started my career teaching year 4 for two years and soon moved to year 5. Although this is my third year with the GEMS Founders’ family, this year will mark my eighth year working as a teacher. As a leader, I ensure that students develop and progress in English at KS2, and this goes hand in hand with effective teaching and learning. I believe it is important to choose content and activities that are both significant and challenging for the students so that they are stimulated to think beyond their comfort zone. Passion is something that drives learning to unimaginable peaks, this is what I aim for: to create a passion for English amongst the children at GFS, in order for them to achieve the unimaginable. This passion that I have always had for English has made me who I am today and my objective is to see the same being cultivated here at GFS."
