I have been teaching for 22 years, 6 years in the Middle East (Baghdad) and 16 years for West Bloomfield Schools. In the Middle East I taught high school for 6 years. The various methods and programs that I learned in Baghdad have helped me to know what works for students and their growth. For 12 years I was a bi-lingual para at Scotch Elementary helping bi-lingual students succeed. In 2013 I was given the opportunity to teach Pre-Calculus at West Bloomfield High School and enjoy meeting and interacting with each new student I meet.
I attended Baghdad University and earned a Bachelor's Degree in Math and a minor in Physics. After completing my course work, I earned a secondary teaching certificate. When I came to America I attended Oakland Community College and earned an Associate's Degree in Liberal Arts. Then I earned an Elementary Education Degree from Oakland University. After my Elementary Education Degree I continued going to school and earned a Master's Degree in Education. Furthermore I also earned my secondary math certificate from Oakland University.
I enjoy working for West Bloomfield Schools and meeting new students. I speak 3 different languages fluently (Arabic, Aramaic and English). I can also write Arabic. In my spare time I like to cook for my 2 wonderful kids, read and garden in the summer!
