Autorenporträt
Shamim Murji found her experiences as a classroom teacher for 25 years (KG-Gr.8) most enjoyable as a teacher, mentor and learner. She also had opportunities to travel as a volunteer teacher and mentor to Liberia, Ghana and Uganda as a participant and team leader for Project Overseas, which is a Canadian Teachers' Federation and Elementary Teachers' Federation of Ontario joint venture to provide free quality professional development to teachers in the developing countries. From 2016-2017 she was seconded by the Ontario Ministry of Education to the Aga Khan Academy in Maputo. Her work in the summer of 2018 with street kids in Jeevapur, a small village in Gujarat, also confirmed to her the importance of English literacy as a life skill. Shamim lives with her husband in Brampton, Ontario, Canada.
