Miss S. Mukhtar
It was whilst I was studying at University when I decided to challenge myself and become a teacher, I graduated from the University of Salford with a BSc (Hons) in Sociology and Criminology. In order to achieve my dream and passion for teaching I successfully completed my PGDE at The University of Bolton. Throughout my career I have taught A Level Sociology, Health and Social Care and Child Care. I truly believe Health and Social Care is an important subject as it provides students with a vast range of knowledge and expertise necessary for a career in Health and Social Care. I love teaching this subject because it’s never dull; every topic brings a new discussion to light and can be applied to todays fast pace diverse society. I believe teaching was the right choice for me as I can make a big difference to young people’s lives and my passion for the subject is what makes my teaching enjoyable and fun!
When health is absent, wisdom cannot reveal itself, art cannot manifest, strength cannot fight, wealth becomes useless, and intelligence cannot be applied.
