Country: Amman - Jordan
School: Asamiah International School

My journey as an educator has been quite diverse and fulfilling. I started my career as an English Language Teacher, became Students’ Affairs Manager after which I progressed to be Amman Academy School Principal for seven years.
My most recent undertaking has been a very big challenge. I was entrusted by some Jordanian investors to establish a top-notch private school in Amman. Hence, Asamiah International School (AIS) was founded in 2010.
As a passionate educator I strongly believe in the empowerment of people in any institution; meaning to enable others to become decision makers, problem solvers, risk-takers and reflective. I also believe in encouraging and supporting others to take initiatives and be creative. I believe in creating opportunities for those who exhibit the willingness to progress in life.
