Notes

I believe my educational, teaching and personal background and vision make me an ideal candidate for the Teacher Educator position . My Bachelor’s degree, which allowed me to dive deeply and intimately into the roots of the Arabic language, my six years of working experience as a teacher of Arabic for foreign students of all ages and my personal philosophy towards teaching will allow me to be a successful and impactful teacher for all students in this program.

I studied at the University of Jordan from 2008 until 2012 where I majored in Islamic Studies and participated in the Foreign Language Center’s language exchange program. My time at the University of Jordan both gave me a finer understanding of the Arabic language’s intricacies as well as the foreign student’s view and experience of the language. It was in my experience as a language partner that taught me how to break down the barrier between student and teacher and to understand students on a personal and pedagogical level.


My six years as a teacher of formal Fusha as well as Levantine dialect Arabic have allowed me to develop pedagogical tools to adapt to a variety of student needs and personalities and a personal teaching ethos. I have learned that teaching is an exploratory experience for both student and instructor. Teaching Arabic as a foreign language, and I believe this applies to native speakers as well, is about a holistic investigation of culture, religion, politics, and language. A teacher must be an expert in not only language but every topic that might arise.




It is about fighting stereotypes and challenging understanding. This is especially true as a female teacher; I feel it is my responsibility as a teacher to challenge concepts of the eastern Arab women.

Teaching requires the active and engaging participation of both student and teacher. A teacher needs to be an actress, a singer, an artist and an educator in order to play to the various learning types. Students, in turn, need to struggle to learn. Teacher’s should not offer easy answers or straight pathways but rather join the student in understanding and overcoming challenges.

Perhaps the most important ethic in teaching and personal relations is working with people as equals. A student may know less but it doesn’t mean they are less. This applies to all students, even children.

In terms of my skills, I’ve organized, advocated, managed and produced in my career as an educator. I’ve traveled, continued to learn, and I will continue to work hard to become a better educator. Learning is a never ending lesson.
