Farida Khan

Hello, my name is Farida and I have been working at Minet Infant School for the past 12 years as a teaching assistant in Year 1 and Year 2.

I started off as a SMSA in 2003 for two years before progressing onto being a teaching assistant in 2005 and now currently work as an LSA. Having two children of my own I felt I already had some insight as to how to work with children and recognise their needs.   

Before working in England I lived in Pakistan as a Captain Nurse/Midwife within different military hospitals. I can speak Pushto, Urdu, Hindi and Punjabi, which has been a great asset for me when working with EAL children.

As a school we collectively ensure that every child is engaged in the classroom and achieves their full potential. Working at Minet has been a lovely adventure as I gained so many skills and met amazing colleagues who are endlessly supportive. It is a fun learning experience for me as it is for the children!
