Asalamu Alaykum, I am Mr Iqbal.
My teaching journey began at the University of Derby where I completed a BA Honours in Education Studies, a Postgraduate Certificate in Education and a Masters in Education.
I feel blessed to be a teacher, inspired by the greatest teacher of all time, Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). There’s no other job in the world which allows me to be an educator, a director, a photographer and an artist all at the same time!
In my classroom, you will find clouds, paper planes, bright lights and a mini masjid – all of this reflects ME! I am passionate about photography, design, writing and traveling. I even wanted to be a pilot once upon a time (until I discovered I was too tall!)
My favourite thing to be when I’m not “Mr Iqbal” is an uncle to my funny and wonderful nephew.
The book you will catch me reading is ‘Planet Omar’ by Zanib Mian- I mean… it’s got my name all over it!
