I am a grade 5 English teacher of native Arabic speaking students and a writer. I love writing with and for my students. They are my inspiration.
I teach in the first school in Bahrain. It has a long history starting in 1899. I’m proud to be part of the legacy of learning, service and good citizenship. Our graduates are improving the world.
Besides making a place for my students to publish their work with a worldwide audience, another goal I have in blogging includes building an online professional learning network for myself. I love getting to visit with people from around the world on our mutual blogs. On this blog you are reading now, I post how I am learning and growing in my present and past classes and endeavors (because I am the chief learner!) I have a teacher blog too. My students’ blogs are all linked here.
In the summer I enjoy traveling, going to workshops, reading, catching my breath, catching up, writing, and spending unhurried time with family and friends.
