QIA - Arabic teacher

For the past 11 years, Maha has served as an Arabic teacher in Wichita, Kansas at Annoor Islamic School. She holds herself to the highest of standards by attending various educational workshops, and gaining her Associate’s Degree in Elementary Education from Butler Community College. Maha is certified on Nuraniyeh teaching from Al Huda University of Houston, TX. 
Teaching a foreign language is not easy, however, Maha has worked with grades ranging from pre-school to high school. To further her professional career, Maha has attended instructional workshops like Chicago’s ISNA Educational Forum on Arabic workshops, for many years, Al Ghazali’s Tarbiya Tutorial, and Derby’s Common Core workshop. She received two Aldeen Foundation Awards for reading and vocabulary core through a fifteen hour Arabic language professional development workshop. Every year, Maha works on enriching students’ abilities to gain knowledge by using new technology, journaling to improve writing skills, and coordinating the first ever spelling bee program and Arabic plays. Her goal is to provide the best understanding of the Arabic language and to help her students learn and enjoy the beauty of the language of the Quran. Maha loves her work and is proud to see how this special Islamic school continues to grow. She looks forward to seeing how the students will lead successful lives as leaders, and become contributing citizens, and leaders of the righteous to society.
