A talented and inspiring educator who is driven to encourage their students to thrive in both their academic and personal lives. aims to provide children with a learning environment that is both demanding and engaging in the hopes that they will develop into scholars and learners for the rest of their lives. At the moment, I work at An-Najah National University as both an assistant professor in the Faculty of Education and Teacher Training and as the department chair for the humanities and social sciences in the Faculty of Graduate Studies for humanities and social sciences. In addition to classes that focus on different types of instructional methods, I also teach courses that are relevant to teaching English to speakers of other languages. Prior to this, I spent five years working as an English instructor in schools located within Palestinian Refugee camps.
My academic credentials consist of a doctorate from the Department of Educational Policy, Research and Administration Educational Sciences- International Education at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst, USA, a Master of Arts in curriculum design and instruction from An-Najah National University, as well as a Bachelor of Arts in English Teaching Methods from the same institution.
I was awarded a Rutherford scholarship to pursue a postdoctoral study at Northumbria University in the United Kingdom. During this time, I investigated the role of education providers in the process of improving citizenship education in the setting of Palestine.
My passion in Teacher Education has led me to participate in a number of different programs that provide training for future teachers. The fields of Teacher Education and Teacher Training, Teaching Pedagogy, Educational Technology, and Citizenship Education are the focus of my research interests.Download CV
