Soofrina joined the DAS Association in early 2012 and is now the EdTech Coordinator for the ELL Division and also a Senior Educational Therapist, teaching the Main Literacy Programme (MLP). Through working with dyslexic learners, Soofrina developed the interest to incorporate educational technologies in the MLP lessons to make the learning and teaching both efficient and within reach for all. Guided by the mantra "As slow as we must but as fast as we can", Soofrina explored classroom differentiation using EdTech tools and now passionately shares knowledge for the professional development of teaching colleagues.

With a Bachelor's Degree in Economics and Finance, Soofrina pursued post-graduate studies in Special Educational Needs and is currently sponsored by DAS to complete her Master of Arts (Instructional Design and Technology) in National Institute of Education (NIE).
