I graduated from the American University of Beirut in June 2005 holding a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Math and Science Education and a minor in Social and Behavioral Sciences. I also received my Masters degree in Math and Science Education in June 2009. During my graduate years at AUB, I worked as a Graduate Assistant in the Education Department at the American University of Beirut. I was a research assistant for the MARAL Project where I helped in conducting research and collecting and analyzing data from Lebanese primary mathematics classrooms. I am currently working on my doctoral dissertation on teacher learning in the context of inquiry-based approaches at Saint Joseph University in Beirut.

Before joining the GME team, I worked at an international school for seven years. I was an elementary homeroom teacher and for the last three years at the school, I took on the leadership role of Math and Science Pedagogical Coach and International Baccalaureate Coordinator for the Primary Years Programme.  I am also an official IB-PYP bilingual  workshop leader. During the years of working with the PYP, I learned that this holistic program is a complex and interconnected framework that reflects the complexities of life in an authentic way. Adopting this this approach to teaching and learning has helped me become a lifelong active learner.
