    Ms. Maria Tanzeel

    Director of Education

    Hello! I'm Ms. Tanzeel and I wanted to tell you a little about myself.

    I’m from Pakistan. I have a Bachelors in Business Administration. My love for children motivated me to become a teacher. I began my teaching career in 2012 and worked with Preschool children for 3 years before moving to Georgia. I have a beautiful daughter as well which made me want to continue teaching. My journey at Primrose School began in 2019 as an Early Preschool Assistant Teacher and few months later I got promoted as an Early Preschool Lead Teacher. Primrose School gave me another chance to grow further by promoting me as a Director of Education. I love this position because it gives me the opportunity to work with staff, parents and assisting all children with their needs. I look forward to ensuring that we keep on establishing an environment where kids can prosper.
