My name is Nisreen Petiwala. I graduated from Nowrosjee Wadia College with a bachelors in physiology and early childhood education. I have been teaching elementary school since 1994. I have had the privilege to teach in India, Dubai, Barcelona and the United States.
In 2016, I joined the North Carolina public school system. I was pleasantly surprised when I won The Golden Apple Award for my school in 2017. It was an honor for me to represent my school at the District Award Ceremony.
I draw my teaching inspiration from my son. He inspires me to treat the students in my classroom with empathy and respect. The underlying philosophy that governs my class is Love and Logic.
