“The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery“. – Mark van Doren
My name is Dafina Kabashi. I am from Prishtina, the bustling capital city of Kosovo. I have been living in the Netherlands since 2022. I graduated from the University of Prishtina in Primary Education. I have previously worked for an IB school and the International School of Prishtina, which have been instrumental for me to learn from different educational cultures.
I aim to utilize my dedication to children’s educational needs and development to encourage creativity and higher-order thinking in a way that increases student performance.
In my spare time I enjoy running, travelling, doing watersports and meeting friends. Teaching is my passion and it is a true privilege to exercise this for and on behalf of the AIS community.
