I am from a beautiful urban town in Jordan known as Irbid. I love to spend the summer in Irbid because my mother, sisters and brother live there. It is a wonderful place to enjoy the natural scenery and the moderate weather, especially in summer. 

It was in Irbid that I obtained my BA in Arabic Language and Literature, and my Higher Diploma in Education. I left Jordan for Abu Dhabi with my husband in 2002 to start a career as an Arabic teacher. I worked for Aldar Academies for seven years before joining BIS Abu Dhabi in 2015, where I have been teaching Arabic ever since.

I love teaching Arabic and I truly enjoy dealing with children and teenagers alike. I like to read a lot, and I always try to find some time to walk on the beach.

BIS Abu Dhabi has given me the opportunity to develop my career and to be more creative, especially with all the modern teaching tools and distinguished facilities which are available for all.

The teaching environment at BIS Abu Dhabi is not only enjoyable but also motivating. Teachers and students alike are encouraged to give their best in a safe and advanced teaching and learning atmosphere.

Indeed, I enjoy my work and the company of friendly colleagues and lovely students.
