Today, while I was doing lunch duty, I saw some Grade 12 students playing football with students from Grade 7. 

We are a small school, but we always try to be inclusive, to support each other and celebrate our achievements. At ISG Jubail, we embrace and respect our differences.

I have had an amazing first year teaching at ISG Jubail. It has been both rewarding and overwhelming. I am motivated every day to do my best in order to challenge the bright students who are eager to learn. When I arrived, the first thing that I noticed was the commitment to excellence in education as a culture of the school and the dedication of the staff. This year, I have grown as a teacher, and I am excited to prepare for another great academic school year.

I have been teaching in ISG since January 2007.  ISG Jubail is a school that goes beyond academics. It fosters a supportive and inclusive environment where every individual is valued and respected. It is a place where students, staff and parents work together to create a nurturing community. I am honored to be part of ISG Jubail and witness firsthand the positive impact it has on the lives of its students and the larger community.

On a personal note, both of my children have graduated from ISG, and I couldn't be prouder. The education they received at ISG has prepared them well for their future endeavors, and I am grateful for the opportunities they were provided.

There are so many things that make ISG Jubail special but the thing that stands out to me the most is the community. Our student community is the heart of the school - they are fun, curious, kind, open minded and the list goes on. I've worked with children and families for almost 20 years and that experience makes me appreciate exactly the magic we have in ISG, particularly Jubail. I've been here for 7 years now and have loved every minute of it!

Reflecting on my past working experiences, ISG is truly an organized institution that meets all of the needs proposed by Abraham Maslow: right from the physiological needs to self-actualization. This therefore motivates me to always give my best. This learning environment is a relatable environment that is very conducive to teaching and learning. I love how professional everyone is at ISG; everyone is engaged and carries out their duties effectively. I love how ISG does not just cater to the tools that promote learning but also cares about improving and advancing the technical competencies of staff by always providing us with opportunities for professional development.
