TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Middle school Social Studies teacher at an American Curriculum school in the Middle East. Most of my students speak Arabic as a first language and don't have much knowledge of general history/geography... so creating resources that are appropriate to their background takes time and patience!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I push my students to be independent and responsible for their learning. Most of our classes are based around projects, activities, or discussions.
