Liking What You Do Is Happiness

My name is Najah Ghanem, I’m from Lebanon. I was raised and educated in Kuwait before moving to Lebanon to complete my degree at Beirut University. I joined Al-Bayan school and community around 24 years ago to teach preschool students. I love children and working with them, they give me positive energy and joy whenever I enter a classroom. One of my hobbies is drawing and art craft, which is an activity that I enjoy with my students, it engages them and adds a creative element to the classroom.

One of the most emotional moments that I remember is when the high school psychology teacher asked his students about the teacher that had the most a impact on them, and 4- 5 students answered ” Ms. Najah, the KG2 teacher”. I was overwhelmed with joy and proud that I had left an impact on them.

I believe in the following quotes: “You never achieve success unless you like what you are doing.” - Dale Carnegie


"Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.”- Warren Buffett
