    Nasima Tukhi – School 4

    Nasima Tukhi’s parents immigrated to America when the Soviet Union attacked Afghanistan. Her parents instilled in her to always work hard for what she wanted and to be kind to others. Their struggles pushed her to always do her best.

    She graduated from Penn State University in 2012 with a Bachelor's Degree in Education in Multicultural Settings. After graduating, she moved to NJ where she substituted for a few years in various schools.

    In 2015, she had her son. A few months later, she was hired as a long-term substitute teacher at Lindenwold School 4. After a year of serving as a substitute, Nasima realized School 4 was the type of environment she would love to serve in. Nasima has taught at School 4 for seven years. She has been able to serve as a second-grade teacher, first grade teacher, and currently as the technology teacher.
