Associated with the Army Public School since 1994, Shahnaz Naeem was a competent and dedicated teacher whose death has left many a colleague and student mourning. Regarded as an inspiring teacher, Shahnaz was also a loving wife and a devoted mother who managed family life just as well.

Shahnaz put great emphasis on education and the studies of her own children and wanted them to become doctors like their father.

Her husband Naeem remembers her as a simple and loving woman who loved arranging family get-togethers and preparing tasty meals for these occasions.

At the same time, her colleagues say she considered them and the children she taught as family members and took care of everyone. Students remember her as a teacher who knew her subject full well and who wouldn’t walk out of the classroom without clearing out her pupils’ concepts.

Shahnaz was conscious of her health and fitness and enjoyed eating fruits and vegetables. She was also fond of travelling – Kashmir being her favbourite spot and would also take the lead in arranging family picnics during holidays.

Her husband remembers her as a brave woman who sacrificed her own life in order to save the lives of many of her students.
