Assalamu Alaikum and welcome! My name is Haia Ahmad. I have my Ohio educator license in Early Childhood, Bachelors of Science in Early and Middle Childhood Studies, and Masters of Early Childhood from The Ohio State University. Additionally, I’m certified with Applied Behavior Analysis therapy and have worked with students with special needs since 2014. Previously, I worked to support patients and families in the hospital setting regarding challenges in child development. I’ve also had experience teaching abroad in Palestine. In the heart of my homeland, Ramallah, I got to teach English to Arabic-speaking students from kindergarten to second grade. This year, I will be back to the same school that I learned Islamic values and the Arabic language as a second-grade teacher. I’m so proud to have come from this beautiful community and I can’t wait to teach the next generation!
