Mrs Abida Mahmood has recently returned to Pakistan after 12 years of teaching English and training teachers in the UK. She holds a BSc degree (Chemistry and Biology) with a roll of honor from Queen Mary College. Her passion for literature led her to do MA in English Literature from Punjab University. Then she went to England and acquired her teaching degree from London while teaching English Literature to GCSE and A level students. She was also involved in teacher training. She enriched her teaching experiences by taking up higher posts and left England in 2001 after resigning from a college in London. She is actively involved in educational seminars and conferences in and out of England.
She returned to Pakistan with the aim of making a difference in the field of education in Pakistan and as soon as she joined her father’s educational trust voluntarily, she has set up a formalized teachers’ training program that has proved to very effective. She intends to start her Ph.D in teacher training from the University of London. She feels that her dream to transform the thinking of the youngsters of today (so that they take pride in their own culture and religion) is achievable if the teachers of today have the capability and enthusiasm to teach the right things.
