Never too old to learn! Salam everyone. I was born in Kuwait and I finished my elementary school there. I then moved to Palestine/West Bank where I finished my high school. I took my B.A. in Science & its Methods of teaching from Educational Sciences Faculty in Ramallah. I finished my M.A. in Methods of Teaching Science from Al Quds University. More recently, I was awarded a doctoral scholarship by the Palestinian Faculty Development Program - sponsored by AMIDEAST and Funded by USAID, OSI (Open Society Institute) and UMASS.


Since 1997, I have worked as science teacher with UNRWA in Palestinian refugee camps; I also worked as a lecturer at Al Quds Open University Teaching Educational Psychology, Creative Thinking and Coexisting with Technology courses. In addition I worked as an educational researcher with the private sector where I had the opportunity to train teachers in the use technology in teaching.


My goal as a first year doctoral student in the Center for International Education (CIE) is to benefit from all the opportunities which this unique center offers through the experience of its professors and the great diversity of its students so I can help in the educational reform and development in Palestine.
