Name and Grade
Ms. Hina Shahid • 5th Grade Math
Where are you From?
I was born in Pakistan. I came San Francisco, California when I was 13yrs old. I moved to Chicago land area about 10 years.
If you could travel to anywhere in the world, where would it be?
It is my dream to travel to the Amazon Rain-forest one day. As we know that Rainforests house around half the world's plant and animal species and are home to indigenous people who live in ways quite unlike those in the western world. I bet it will be an experience of a life time!!!
What is one book that everyone must read?
One book everyone must read in my opinion is "To Kill a Mocking Bird" by Harper Lee. This book has all the factors of a great read. It is touching and funny but has a serious message about prejudice, fighting for justice and coming of age.
Who was your favorite teacher growing up?
My favorite teacher was my high school physics teacher Mr. Miller. He was a smart, intelligent, kind and extremely dedicated individual. It was because of his encouragement and unwavering support that I kept up my GPA and was accepted at the prestigious University of California at Berkeley.
What do you like most about Goudy?
It is my first year at Goudy and looking forward to many more. The first thing I noticed when I came to Goudy was the warm and inviting environment. All the office staff and my fellow teachers have been extremely helpful and supportive. I could not have found a better place to work!
