Kia Ora, Asamalaykum and Bula, my name is Sana Iqbal and I will be teaching room 25 at ANI. I was born and raised in Australia, Melbourne and happened to find the love of my life across the Tasman in New Zealand. I graduated from Deakin University with a bachelors degree in Secondary teaching/arts majoring in children’s literature. I had an early passion for teaching from a young age which stemmed from my grandfather being the head principal in his hometown in Fiji. I never thought I would leave Australia but I believe this change is for the better and I already feel so welcomed by those surrounding me here in NZ. One thing I enjoy to see is how much NZ embraces the Maori culture and I sense the love the community shares for its country. I have so far travelled to Queenstown and Wellington but I still have much more of nz to explore. I look forward to my first NZ teaching experience at ANI and I will do my level best in giving my students quality and beneficial teaching.
