Students are becoming experts in saving planet earth and have studied in depth topics such as what is pollution, what is rubbish, what is recycling and what is sustainable living. The words might be big, but they all came to a great understanding of the topic! I tried with them a strategy called jigsaw which involved students learning and teaching from each other and it was very successful! Check out their awesome work! We also started training for fiction writing, way to go 2-2!!

Year 2-2 are experts in recycling, pollution and sustainable living! They did amazing research and we will continue this deep learning of caring of our environment for the whole week! I am very proud of all my students! At the end of the day, they deserved a dance break!

My name is Noura Khalaf! I'm a Palestinian Canadian with 4 beautiful children who are my pride and joy. I've been Team Leader and a Year 2 teacher at EMS Doha for the past 8 years.

I believe that all children are unique and have something special that they can bring to their own education. I will assist my students to express themselves and accept themselves for who they are, as well embrace the differences of others.

Every classroom has their own unique community and my role as the teacher will be to assist each child in developing their own potential and learning styles. I will present a curriculum that will incorporate each different learning style, as well as make the content relevant to the students' lives.

My goal is to always incorporate hands-on learning, cooperative learning, projects, themese and concepts and individual work that engage and activate students learning.

I believe in a building a strong teacher-parent realtionship. A good two-way communication between parents and teachers is necessary for students' success. This way, we are both better the better equipped to help your child achieve academically.

Please email me for any questions or concerns at : noura.khalaf@emsdoha.net.

You can always arrange for an appointment to see me through the school secretary.
