Did you know that Ms. Arshia Mufti is one of the first teachers to teach at RMS? She has taught at Richardson for eighteen years. She is a big help to RMS because she helps students who need extra help with math.
“The best part about teaching is the students, the challenges of dealing with individual learning styles and the diversity,” said Mufti.
Mufti attended schools in other countries. She went to school at Saint Joseph’s College and Punjab University, both in Pakistan. She also attended Central Missouri University and California State University Dominguez Hills.
In her spare time, Mufti reads, plays Sudoku, enjoys puzzles and paints. Her most recent paintings are of people’s dogs.
She also spends time with family and friends. She has one son who lives in China.
Mufti’s favorite television show is Sixty Minutes and her favorite movies are Lawrence of Arabia and Dr. Zhivago. She likes foods from different parts of the world, and currently, sushi is her favorite!
“If I weren’t a teacher, I’d like to paint or work with disadvantaged people around the world,” said Mufti.
Mufti encourages everybody to ask questions about math or anything else. She says, “I love to listen and talk”.
So, if you see Ms. Mufti on campus, say hello and start up a conversation. She would love to chat with you!
Thank you, Ms. Mufti, for making such a difference at RMS for students as well as your peers!
