Asalaam Alaikum! I am from Miami, Florida and have lived in Greenville for three years.  I have a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education and Special Education from Vanderbilt University and a Masters degree in Early Childhood Special Education from the University of Miami.  I taught both Kindergarten and Fourth Grade for Miami-Dade County Public Schools.  This is my first year teaching at As-Sabeel Academy and my fourth year as a parent.  I am excited to be working with such bright young stars.

I believe that children learn holistically and learn best when engaged in activities that are meaningful to them.  I also believe that strong skills provide them with a solid foundation on which to grow. Just as no two children are the same, no two classes are the same, and I believe that different approaches are necessary to reach all students.   I welcome both participation and communication from parents–education is a team effort!

I have six children, five of whom are As-Sabeel students.  I am currently working on my Islamic Studies Certification and enjoy visiting the mountains and spending time with my family.
