Born and raised in South Africa, during apartheid and the time of the country’s transition into a modern democracy, Badsha’s identity as a teacher is influenced by the concept of Ubuntu, which is based on notions of community, inter-generational respect and mutuality.Badsha utilizes the modality of inquiry-based lesson plans and project-based assessment strategies to bring awareness to issues of social justice and inequity while promoting intercultural understanding. Badsha is thrilled to be part of the community at EAC where students are inspired to become life-long learners and are encouraged to cultivate a more conscious and caring world community.
