Hi! My name is Hasan Sunjari and I am teaching business at NOIC. I was born on 27th of September, 1974 in Bangladesh. I spent the major span of my academic life in Bangladesh. Yes! I was already a Bachelor of Business Administration (1996) when I left Bangladesh for Australia for post-graduation. I joined as a high school Business and Economics teacher in one of the largest institutions in Bangladesh- Scholastica- in 2001. I taught CIE (Cambridge International Exams) Business curriculum for 10 years there! In 2011, I migrated to Canada with my wife and a 5 year old daughter. My Canadian career as a teacher commenced with Seabird College in Agassiz, BC where I taught business to a group of first-nation Canadians. Since it was a contractual job, I got back Toronto after a year and half only to join NOIC, again, as a high school Business Teacher.
