In my spare time I enjoy cooking, reading, dancing and going to the movies. I love taking trips to the theatre to watch all performances however musicals are my favourite.
My name is Miss Girlie and I am a fully qualified Montessori teacher with 12 years of teaching experience. I am originally from the Philippines where I trained to become a Montessori teacher at the O.B. Montessori Centre, Philippines in which I have also worked after my qualification. I have also taught as a Montessori teacher in Jakarta, Indonesia and in Fontainebleau, France prior to moving with my family to London. Here in London I worked at an AMI Montessori nursery as an assistant where I have been given a Montessori Assistant Certificate by AMI UK. Due to my family commitments, I am a mother of 3 children I am at this point in my life happy to be a teaching assistant and look forward to working together with Miss Mariam in Elementary 2.
Mariam Ali Iftikhar has been teaching for over five years, with experience
in both primary schools and Montessori nursery settings. In addition, to
being an Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) trained directress,
she has an undergraduate degree in International Business and Marketing.
Her interests include travelling and learning about new cultures and
languages, and where possible sharing her experiences in the classroom
