Alsalamu Alekum WarahmatuAllah Wabarakatu,

I am pleased to be the homeroom teacher for Grade 6 students for the academic year of 2019-2020. Although I am teaching these students for the first time at the Ottawa Islamic school, my immediate goal is to get to know the students personally and to identify individual student's academic strengths and weaknesses and to plan my lessons to advance the class in the most effective teaching strategy. I believe that each student has unique sets of learning skills and ability and my goal is to effectively motivate students to utilize their strengths to achieve higher and to develop new sets of skills where they show weaknesses. As a class, I will focus on organizing the class in small groups in a way that benefits each student and help students develop the skills of group work and individual responsibilities within a group, InshaAllah. I believe that parents' active involvement in the day to day school academic and behavioural performance of their children is critical in assisting students to achieve their full potential. Therefore, I am looking forward to establishing regular communication through daily agenda and occasional in person meetings to work together to help students achieve the best results possible.
