Dear Windermere Prep Community,
My family and I are thrilled to become members of the Windermere Prep family. My husband, Hasan will be working in the dorms and as a soccer coach, and our three children, Layla (8), Yasmine (6), and Zidane (4) are in the lower school.
Originally from New Jersey, I have lived and worked in NJ, MA, NYC, VA, France, Jordan, and Qatar. My husband and I met in Jordan when we helped found King's Academy. We moved to Orlando this summer from Doha, Qatar, where I was the Upper School Principal at GEMS American Academy. During our time in Qatar, we had the wonderful opportunity to work with dedicated educators and incredible students from around the world, which is one of the reasons that we were attracted to Orlando and Windermere Preparatory School.
I am an experienced school leader with a passion for building school communities and growing student potential. My goal is to empower students and teachers to make the world a better place through STEAM, SDGs, mindfulness, and empathy. Throughout my career, I have dedicated my energy to a variety of different PS - 12 school communities, including independent, public, private, boarding, day schools, co-ed, all girls, AP, and IB. My classroom experience at all division levels in multiple departments (English, Mathematics, Philosophy/Ethics, Science, and Social Studies/History) combined with my knowledge from being a founding member of four different schools, gives me a unique vantage point as an educational leader.
I look forward to meeting all of our students and families at events throughout the year!
