Nahla initially joined our community as a substitute teacher at World Academy in 2017. She has been a Science and Mathematics teacher here and is looking forward to assisting our school continue to grow and flourish in the area of Science.
She believes that education is a keystone in a child's life. It is the best time to give them the love of learning and curiosity to learn more. This can only happen by providing a classroom that they feel is a safe place to share opinions and have open discussions.
She finds it best to set high expectations for her students and help them reach that bar, feel proud of their work and even exceed expectations. She always supports her students by continuous close follow up and assessments of their work, providing them with frequent detailed feedback and solving any issues before it's too late.
