Teachers' Stories

Optimism is the Key

Posted on November 11, 2017 at 11:35 PM


My name is Alaa Fahmi Kareem, and I’m from Palestine. I’m married and a mother of a little girl. I enjoy cooking and travelling.


I worked as a teacher for 12 years by starting teaching elementary children in the first 4 years, and then by teaching preschool children for 8 years. I love my work, and I’m so proud of it.


I always get so emotional during the end of year musical concert watching children’s performance, picturing how they started the year, and how much they develop and grow.


My goal this year is to learn more about Reggio Emilia program so that the implementation of the program next school year would be easy and successful.


My favorite inspiring word is “be optimistic of what you like...it happens!”
