Zaitun Mahedi

A former student clearly remembers Zaitun Mahedi's science classes at Crofton House School in Vancouver. She describes "ravenous faces eager to absorb more fascinating knowledge." Ms. Mahedi has a knack for making science, and in particular biology, relevant to her classes. One lab has students draw the face of their own future babies by comparing their own phenotypes and genotypes to those of ideal future husbands.
