2nd Grade Teacher

Ms. Wafaa Salih

My name is Wafaa Salih, AKA Ms. Waffles, and this is my first year teaching in Sunrise Academy as a 2nd Grade teacher! My parents are from Morocco, and my siblings and I were born in Queens, New York. We moved to Hilliard, Ohio when I was seven years old, and Alhamdulillah, shortly after, I was welcomed into the Sunrise Academy family as a 2nd grade student. I was a student at Sunrise from 2nd - 6th grade, and continued my academic career in Hilliard Public School, and graduated from Hilliard Darby High School in 2019. By Allah's grace, I received my Associate’s Degree of Science from Columbus State Community College in Spring 2021, and recently graduated with my Bachelor's of Arts in Psychology from The Ohio State University in Spring 2023. Prior to teaching at Sunrise, I was a Summer Camp Counselor in the Sunrise Academy Summer Camp 2017-2019, and 2023.
