Yusra Mushtaq

Head of Year 1

My name is Yusra Mushtaq. I have been teaching for the past 20 years. I joined CIS in 2010 as a Year 1 Class Teacher. In the year 2011 – 2012, I got the opportunity of working as the Deputy Phase Leader in KS1.  I have been working as a Cambridge Learning Coach (CLC) for 2 years. Alongside my many roles as HOY Year 1, I am pleased to be working as the Gifted and Talented Representative for KS 1. My passion is in the arts and I will take every opportunity to embed the arts in my teaching and find ways of making the classroom environment and lessons stimulating and exciting. I am now in my seventh year here at CIS and have thoroughly enjoyed working together with the dedicated and happy staff. I enjoy working with children and helping them reach for their dreams through their education.  I believe every child should be valued and treated with respect.  An education should empower a child and help him or her make a positive contribution to our world. CIS is a happy place to be and I am extremely proud to be part of it.
