After having been a Farsi and French teacher for over 28 years, Mandana Pourmand decided to found her own Farsi School, Ferdowsi Farsi School. What’s most important to her is teaching Iranian-American kids all about the Farsi language and Persian culture. She believes that teaching them their heritage will allow them to appreciate their families and value their backgrounds. Her teaching style has not failed her-she has had hundreds of students successfully learn the Farsi language. More importantly, she has had hundreds of students enjoy learning the Farsi language. She hopes to see Ferdowsi Farsi grow, and make a positive impact in the Iranian community for years to come.
