It’s wonderful to listen to them and see the wonder and joy as they recount their experiences. So many of them travel, and their infectious excitement as they tell their stories quickly takes over the whole class. I always remind myself of how important it is to listen to them, and learn from their experiences. For me, as a teacher, a new school year means a new opportunity to positively touch my students’ hearts and minds, and hopefully their lives.” For her, the back to school season is a time to bond with students and help them build their knowledge by helping them learn from own experiences.

It’s a chance to build on previous experiences and carry them forward. Each child is unique and each child I have taught has opened my eyes to new experiences and new expectations. So often, we become the learners and they the teachers,” she added. Reem Sabobeh, a student at the Al Mawakeb School in Al Garhoud. expressed happiness at being able to go back to school. “I had a nice long break, and I’m ready to go back and finish on a high note. This year is my final year at school and I hope I will have the chance to grow into an even more mature and dependable student, on my way to university. At Al Mawakeb, we learn to be responsible but we also learned that there is no limit to growth, and I plan to keep growing.” – Taylor Scott International
