Misk Sharif Ali uses her own personal experience of education to engage and connect with students who might not have found their motivation. She is also recognised for her focus on changing the language and attitude of her students to enable their own independence.

Described by students and colleagues as ‘the best of the best’, and ‘an absolute gem,’ through hard work, determination, passion and unlimited energy, Misk’s students learn in a way that has transformed, not just their classroom experience, but also their lives.

The exceptional quality of her work, both with and for her students, make her an inspiration.
However, it isn’t only students who benefit from her expertise; as a Learning Coach, her dedication, commitment and mentoring skills help other teachers become outstanding.’
