    Arabic Teacher

    Abeer Abu Jalala

    I am a Palestinian, I was born in Qatar and graduated from Qatar University. I started my career as an Arabic, Islamic Education and Qatar History Teacher in independent and foreign schools in Qatar. I have 19 years’ experience in education, during which I taught all the stages (elementary, preparatory and secondary), which gave me a wide and varied experience. I always seek to transfer the latest knowledge, science and experiences to develop my students; to contribute in creating an independent generation able to communicate and interact with the world and its variables.

    I have been a teacher for 15 years. After graduating from university, where I studied German language and literature and English language and literature, along with all the courses needed for a teacher (psychology, pedagogy, methodology), I started working as a Secondary School Teacher, preparing students for their final examinations both in English and German. After two years I left my home country, but I went on teaching English in the Czech Republic. I have been teaching English there for 12 years, all age categories from kindergarten up to the final examinations, as well as adults.

    Denise Hakkens

    Primary Dutch Teacher

    Denise Hakkens

    With over 10 years of teaching experience in the Netherlands and the United Kingdom I am thrilled to be working for Compass Gharaffa as a Dutch teacher. Shortly after completing my Bachelor of Education (PABO) in Haarlem I moved to the United Kingdom and worked as a class teacher in an International School in Chelsea, London. I have worked with many international students and really enjoy celebrating their different nationalities and languages. I am always amazed by the children’s ability to work in two (or more!) languages, adapt to living in a home away from home, make new international friends yet still feel deeply connected to their native countries.

    I have lived in Doha since 2020 and love exploring Qatar, the city and its parks with my husband and two toddlers.
