I was born in Abu Dhabi and and then in 2012, I moved to Egypt. I work as a "Special Education Needs Specialist" at an international school in Cairo. I've been working for six years. I began my career as a Montessori teacher and later as a 1:1 teacher. Then I began working as a special education needs educator.
I have received my postgraduate certificate (PGCert) in Leading Provision and Practice for Special Education Needs and Learning Disabilities from the University of Sunderland (UK). Additionally, I'm doing a master's degree in education at the University of Sunderland. My thesis is about improving inclusive education in international schools in Egypt. I also earned a CPD certificate in child development and teaching strategies from the American University in Cairo.
I have participated in the following continuing professional development (CPD) courses: play and art therapy, effective classroom management, ADHD, autism spectrum disorder, cognitive behaviour therapy, dyslexia, and anxiety awareness.
