Miss Kainat Qurashi


My name is Kainat Qurashi and I am super excited to be your child's first grade teacher at Hastings Elementary! I graduated summa cum laude from the University of Texas at Arlington through the education program. I believe that every child is able to learn and am eager to help provide the best learning oppurtunities for my students this year. My goal is to make sure that my students grow academically and socially, and that they are cared for. 

A little bit about me, I’m engaged to my loving fiancé and I live with my family in Mansfield, TX! My youngest brother is starting 1st grade this year so I have an additional experience with this particular age group! I love to travel, take pictures, spend time with my family, and I am eager to help make this the best school year ever!
