Mahboubeh is a wonderful mentor for both our boys, Thomas and Jack. Always attentive and thoughtful towards her students, our boys and our family together consider her both a fine educator and dear friend.
Her kindness and generosity towards our boys are truly gifts from the heart. And our boys can feel it too. At the start of every school year, our boys always make a point in requesting that we continue with Mahboubeh and her wonderfully inspiring philosophy classes for children.
The stories and art that she shares with my boys have opened them up to not only the wonders of their individual selves and the world around them, but especially how very complex life’s questions can be. Rather than only initiating questions and providing answers, Mahboubeh inspires them to ask the questions themselves and to come up with their own personal opinions and thoughts. Her openness towards both Thomas and Jack shows us just how much she honours and respects young minds and young hearts.
Mahboubeh’s caringness towards her students extends to their families as well. She always makes time to talk to me about my children, and to share her own joyful observations and interactions with them. I truly treasure what she shares with me. As a parent, I have had the pleasure in getting to know her both inside and outside of the classroom.
Thank you Mahboubeh!
