A warm hello! I'm Fatima and I studied at Rainbow Montessori Training College (RMTC) under Linda Madden in 2007 and completed my teaching practice at Rainbow - West Hampstead in 2009. I was an assistant class teacher at Rainbow Montessori Junior School in 2018 and I am very happy to be back at Rainbow as a Key Person!
I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Speech Communication (Minor in Theatre Arts) from the University of the Philippines (Level 6), TQUK Level 2 qualifications in Understanding Autism and Challenging Behaviours in Children and I am a fully qualified Montessori Educator (MCI, 2-6 years, Level 4). I am currently studying for my second degree, BSc Psychology at The Open University in Milton Keynes ((Level 6).
I believe in a compassionate, person-centred approach and practice it both in and out of the classroom. I have over 11 years’ experience in Montessori and over 17 years’ experience in Early years Education. I live locally with my partner, 2 children (ages 17 and 7 years old) & 2 cats (Kanji and Ming-ming). I am Vegetarian and I love films, food, music, reading, writing, exploring and swimming!
