Mariam Ali

My name is Mariam. I am pleased to be rejoining the wonderful N.M.S family.

I have a degree in English Linguistics from a well-reputed university in Bangladesh. I have taught English to a variety of age groups in different educational streams in Hong Kong for the last 10 years.

I particularly chose to teach English as it is a global language, and once our future generation has a better understanding of the language a lot of opportunities will be open for them.

I love teaching and enjoy watching them learn about the world around them. My goal is to make them enjoy learning English and facilitate them in wanting to be lifelong learners.

It is very important for the teachers and the parents to nurture and help the children together. I hope we can build a good partnership to help your child succeed.  

Miguel Bastida

My name is Miguel Bastida and I will be your child’s teacher this year. I was born and raised in Mexico City. I graduated from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) in 2012 with a Bachelor in Arts (Music) and I love teaching music! I could teach it all day. I am a passionate person, who shows empathy and care for others. I bulid great relationships with my students. I have been teaching English to Kindergarten children for over five years and this will be my third year teaching at NMS Lutheran Kindergarten. I have experience teaching phonics to kindergarten students. Teaching and working with children is a joy to me. Part of my goal as an educator is to spark curiosity in the mind of my students. I love the energy and excitement that small children display. Kindergarten teachers have the opportunity to expose students to many new things. Often times, school is the first time children are taking field trips to museums, factories and other places they’ve never been. Children love learning. They are eager to experience and withness new things makes my job exciting and rewarding. I hope experience new adventures in this new school year. I am so looking forward to meeting and working with your child. We are going to have a great year! [/rara_toggle]
