Lama Hajj 5th Grade Homeroom Teacher
After 6 years of experience at AISM, I am thrilled to become a 5th-grade homeroom teacher. My philosophy is centered on fostering a supportive and inclusive learning environment where every student feels valued and empowered to reach their full potential. I believe in the importance of cultivating not only academic excellence but also social and emotional growth, encouraging my students to become critical thinkers, compassionate individuals, and responsible members of our community.
Grade 2 Teacher
What I like about my position is that it gives me the ability to shape opinions and help form ideas about society, life and personal goals. I believe that I can also expand students' limits and push their creativity.
MS & HS English Teacher
I believe in showing my students the importance of having an open mind when it comes to learning, nurturing the natural desire for knowledge and understanding, and using what you learn in the real world. Reading, writing, listening, speaking, and thinking are all skills that can be developed to serve students in their lives. When we learn to articulate what we do and why we do it, we build responsible communities, both inside and outside of the classroom.
Grade 3 Teacher/Elementary Admin
As an educator with almost ten years of teaching experience in elementary, a degree in Education, a master’s in Special Ed, and nearly two years as the elementary administrator, I look to inspire teachers in their ability to affect students learning positively.
I believe all children are unique and must have a stimulating educational environment where they can grow academically, physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially.
Grade 4 Teacher
My philosophy of education is that all children are unique and must have a stimulating educational environment where they can grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially. It is my desire to create this type of atmosphere where students can meet their full potential.
Learning Support & Admin.
I believe that all students can learn, but not the same way or on the same day as someone once said. Teachers are facilitators of learning, teaching students to become life-long learners and contributing members of society. We must recognize that our world is changing rapidly and to accommodate all learners, we must continually adjust our teaching style and methods.
Middle & High School Math Teacher
I like working at a school that places importance on math as part of the curriculum on attainment and improvement. AISM sets high standards and provides support in my role as a teacher to achieve the objectives of the curriculum. AISM creates an environment that is conducive to effective teaching and learning. I feel that my teaching style would fit well with the program, and I could help encourage more students to enjoy math and succeed in it.
Grade 1 Teacher
I have a lifelong passion for learning and I enjoy passing on the knowledge that I have acquired to others. In addition to that, there is so much to be learned from the youth and I am always excited to grow with them. I love my position because it creates an opportunity to instill confidence and new learning strategies in the students.This encourages them to reach their full potential.
Principal & Counselor
I believe learning is a lifelong process. As an educator, I too must continue to educate myself and seek professional development opportunities to grow. I have adopted the belief that my role is not limited to just counseling and guidance for my students. I am also perceived as an educator, who supports my students in the classroom and outside of the classroom.

Elementary Computer Science Teacher
his marks my second year at AISM, and I couldn't be more thrilled to be a part of this vibrant community. With a wealth of over 3 years of experience in the programming industry, my journey through the technology landscape has been nothing short of exhilarating. However, it's my sincere passion for programming and my aspiration to share this enthusiasm with young minds that have steered me towards the world of education. Inside the classroom, I bring my industry experience to life. I have a steadfast belief in the effectiveness of hands-on, and student-driven learning methods. At the core of my teaching philosophy lies the nurturing of creativity, the cultivation of critical thinking, and the refinement of problem-solving skills – qualities that hold immense value for aspiring programmers and individuals in any other field alike.

I believe that every child is gifted, they just unwrap their packages at different times.
This is my second year working at AISM. I have twelve years of experience in education, specifically in Early Childhood and Elementary school. My classrooms are spaces for exploration and discovery. I favor practical lessons in which students get hands-on experience with the subjects under analysis.
Admissions Coordinator/Counselor Pre-K - 6
My name is Ms. Fateen Baaith, and I am the Admissions Coordinator and the School Counselor for grades Pre-K - 6 at AISM. Professionally, I graduated from an Educational Specialist program in School Psychology. I'm a state certified School Psychologist and a certified Elementary Education Teacher with over 17 years of experience in counseling, evaluating, and teaching students. My primary responsibility is to help children reach their highest academic and social/emotional goals this year. I provide a range of services during school hours including short-term individual/small group counseling, classroom counseling lessons, meeting with parents, collaborating with school staff, and consulting with community agencies to help benefit and meet the needs of all AISM students. Personally, what gives me the most pleasure is reading historical novels, participating in outdoor activities, eating fresh sushi routinely, and watching docudramas. I look forward to offering support to the AISM students, staff, and community this school year.
MS & HS Teacher
Every second of our lives offers us an opportunity to learn and grow. Learning is a lifelong journey of discovery, development, and personal growth. Imagine embarking on a journey to learn a new language, such as French, and exploring different cultures, countries, and traditions. It's a process of expanding our horizons and enriching our knowledge. We're here to acquire and practice new vocabulary. I firmly believe that, in the end, students will be inspired and undergo significant personal development.
AISM gives me a great opportunity to experience a new role. My future goal is to become a professional teacher of physical education and contribute to the growth and development of physical education.

I'm humble and delighted to be part of molding our future generations.

Science /AP Teacher.
Mr. Swaib mujuni has been in teaching service for the last 12 years in different international programs as a science teacher and in administration. He has taught sciences in international schools in Kigali Rwanda, Kampala Uganda and currently a high school science and AP teacher. What I admire in sciences is science being the great adventure of the human mind and nothing is more rewarding than exploring the unknown. My educational philosophy is to inspire my students to change others and to never give up even when faced with challenges that seem impossible. This enables them to grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially. Science being so dynamic it’s my desire to create an atmosphere to enable my students build responsible communities both inside and outside the school.
