With a Bachelor of Education and a diploma in Computer Networking Systems, it's no surprise that Afzal is also a Google Certified Teacher. He brings expertise from many areas to his role as Technology Teaching and Learning Coordinator. He's travelled the world but this die-hard Raptors fan is a true Torontonian.
Along with a Bachelor of Education, Afzal holds additional qualifications in ICT and Science and is a member of the Ontario College of Teachers. He's been invited to mentor and share his practice for Google at their annual Innovator Academy for teachers and more recently was invited to Seattle by National Geographic/Google Earth Outreach to take part in discussions regarding Geographic lessons using new tech tools for the classroom. He also routinely presents at Educational Conferences such as the Edtech Summits, IB Conferences and Google Apps Summits.
Afzal and his family love to travel. His list of places visited includes; Israel, Palestine, Turkey, India, Pakistan, Jordan, Greece, Amsterdam, France, Barbados, Trinidad, UAE, the UK and the US. One of Afzal's favourite quotes is: "The world is like a book, and those who do not travel read only a page" - Saint Augstine
