Level 5 - Sr Maye


About Me

Asalaamualaikum! 

I am very excited to be teaching level 5 this year.  Last year I taught level 4b and assisted 3b the year before so hopefully I'll see some familiar faces! Our three main focuses this year will be Islamic studies, Quran, and our Muslim American identity. Inshallah we will cover a lesson within these subjects every week. 

What's expected from students:
Come prepared! I want you to be ready to share your opinion and participate in discussions! This is a safe zone so our goal is to make our classroom a conformable environment for all by respecting each others opinion and maintaining an open mind. 

Don't view Sunday School as an inconvenient class on the last day of the weekend. Instead, look at it as a place with endless opportunities whether it's by learning something new, meeting new friends, or having access to fries and chicken tenders very early in the morning. 

What's expected from parents: 
Help your child retain the information taught in class. Since this is a weekly class, it's difficult to retain information for the following week therefore we need you to assist your child with homework and to further discuss class material. 


A little about me: 
I was born and raised here in Seattle however I spent three years in Amman, Jordan between the ages of 10-13 to learn Arabic and Islam. I recently graduated from the University of Washington with a BS in Speech and Hearing Sciences. I love community service. I think it's extremely important to serve our local community as well as being aware of international humanitarian disasters and serving those communities in any way possible. I'm not a huge sports fan but if anyone disses the Seahawks I feel as a Seattleite I have an obligation to defend them.
