Meet our Staff

My name is Mr. Rami, I was born and raised in Lebanon. I have been teaching at the English Modern School for 8 years and i'm honoured to be the head of primary PE and after school activities coordinator.

I enjoy the energy and enthusiasm that the younger students have for being active. My goal is to teach them why being active is important and show them all the different ways that they can be successful at moving. Besides our amazing students, one of the greatest things about teaching at EMS is the motivation and dedication of the PE department.
