Welcome to 2-7 Ms. Shawnette

In Class 2-7, We Reach For the Stars!

I am excited to be a part of the EMS family and am dedicated to the social and academic enrichment of each student. I am from Toronto, Canada and have been an educator for over 9 years, specializing in the area of science, math and teaching students with exceptionalities.


I believe in the importance of student engagement and strive to make learning fun and relevant to the lives of my students. I am excited for our year ahead and encourage you to be a part of it too!


Should you have any suggestions, please feel free to contact me at shawnette.bankasingh@emsdoha.net so we can both support the growth of your child.



We have two snack times each day except for only one on Thursday.


We are teaching our students about the 4 food groups and healthy food practices.

Please send a filled 1 liter reusable water bottle with your student.

We are working on being globally aware so we encourage parents to only bring reuseable bottles please.

healthy food, reading and water are good for our soul!

Reminder that girls' swimming has begun! Please have students prepared with swimming suits, swimming caps, and a sweater to wear after class ends. Thank you!

Please note that Physical Ed is on Sunday and Tuesday. Please ensure your child is dressed in the appropriate gym attire which includes uniform jogging pants and T-shirt. Students may often be outside and will need water and a hat. Thank you
