In the years that followed, Ms. Amal took on various leadership and senior leadership roles, such as Mathematics Coordinator, Global Head of Mathematics, Head of Academics and Head of Secondary in 2012. Having taught and headed various curriculum such as the National curriculum, the IB and the British (IGCSE/A-Level) curriculum, all made Ms Amal a key member of our academic development plan; that along with her leadership skills in administration has played an instrumental part in the development of our Secondary school.
Ms. Amal was awarded the Cambridge Inspirational Teacher in 2009 at the Queen Rania Awards Ceremony, being recognized for her positive impact through educating, coaching and leading.
