Zahida has been teaching at Bishop Vesey’s Grammar School since January 2020. She studied Primary Education with QTS BA (Hons) at Birmingham City University.
She began her teaching career in 2009 as a Year 5 teacher at Cromwell Primary School in Nechells, where she became Head of Science. She moved on to Starbank Primary School in 2015 to continue teaching upper KS2. It was at Starbank School she was offered the opportunity to teach secondary English. After two years, she progressed to second in department and eventually became the head of the English department; it was during this time she completed a Masters in English. Although, Zahida thoroughly enjoyed her time as HoD, and as her career had taken a different path from where it began, she decided to go back to being a class teacher and join Bishop Vesey’s.
Zahida believes in balance, therefore family time is an integral part of her life. In her free time: she loves reading, researching the historical roots of literature, going to the theatre and jogging.
Zahida hopes to contribute to the nurturing of all our students here at BVGS and develop their love of literature. She hopes she able to inspire them to succeed and make the most of the opportunities they are offered at BVGS.
