Head of Year 3
My name is Delzin Dastoor, I moved to Dubai, from Mumbai, India six years back. I have been teaching for more than 10 years, this year marks the beginning of my seventh-year teaching at GFS. I have previously been the Head of English for KS2 at GFS for 3 years and have moved on to being Head of Year 3 since the last 2 years. As a leader I ensure that students develop and progress across the year group, 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, and this is what I aim for: to create a passion among the learners in Year 3, in order for them to achieve the unimaginable. This passion that I have always had for teaching and learning has made me who I am today and my objective is to see the same being cultivated within my team.
