After graduating from Damascus University with a BA degree in Arabic literature I worked in Sharjah and I taught Arabic for native and non-native from Years 6-11. Throughout my career I was able to develop my teaching skills which enabled me to challenge the children for them to reach their full potential.
After that I moved to Dubai and I worked in outstanding schools here over the last 9 years and taught both Arabic A and B across the school. Experience has taught me how to build strong relationships with all departments in school. I have the ability to work within a team as well as cross-team. I worked close with the PE and Music teams to develop children’s skills in Arabic beyond the Arabic lessons as I was responsible for writing songs and stories in Arabic for the school play and running sports clubs which involved communicating with children in Arabic.
Being a passionate linguist gave me the ability to spread the love for languages across the school community. I am a flexible and active person who is always looking for new pedagogies and strategies to use in my lessons to enhance the children’s abilities and promote higher thinking skills and problem solving.
Being part of KHDA workshops as a lecturer helped me to grow as an educator and gave me the experience to share and support my school especially in assessments and teaching strategies.
I enjoy being a member of the NAS community and being able to share the love I have for Arabic language and contribute positively in this outstanding school.
