Principal’s Welcome Note


Dear Gateway Community,

I’m delighted to welcome all returning and new students and families to Gateway International Montessori School. Gateway is a learning community that is committed to helping every child to grow socially, emotionally, and academically in a safe and nurturing environment. We are eager to have all learners back on campus and have another exciting year full of remarkable learning opportunities.

It’s my great honor to be part of Gateway as the School Principal and the Dean of Academics. I consider myself a lifelong learner who strives to contribute positively to society, human well-being, and development. In view of that, I’m avid to research teaching, learning, and leadership from different perspectives. My passion for exploring diverse methods to support learners with engaging and empowering learning opportunities started nearly twenty years ago. Throughout the years, I took part in the international educational field as an educator, administrator, professional trainer, and academic consultant for international schools in and out of Egypt. My educational background entails several diplomas in teaching adolescent learners, coaching, school leadership, and a Master’s degree in International Education and Policy from American University in Cairo (AUC) coupled with being a certified International Baccalaureate (IB) Head of School and a certified Association Montessori International (AMI) School Administrator.

At Gateway, we pride ourselves on having a loving and caring community that strives to cultivate a generation of balanced, ethical, independent inquirers, and creative problem solvers. Furthermore, as a community, we consider every challenge an opportunity to learn and develop. I would like to pay tribute to all our dedicated teachers, resilient students, and supportive parents for their outstanding commitment to adapting to the unprecedented challenges posed by the ongoing outbreak of the pandemic. It is a solemn duty to protect yourself and others, so lead by example in all aspects! This effort cannot be achieved on an individual basis; it requires diligent commitment from everyone.

In closing, I wish to stress that the safety of our students, staff, and families while providing quality education is our foremost priority. Given that, these goals will remain at the heart of our decision-making process. I’m confident that our enduring collaborative efforts and responsible collective response will allow us to navigate this new reality efficiently as a resilient cooperative community.

Wishing you a safe, happy, and fruitful academic year!

Teachers' Workshop

Creating Peaceable Learning Communities through Informed Classroom Leadership
This workshop is designed to help teachers understand the unique dynamics of a Montessori approach to discipline for children at every level. Workshop participants will learn about the philosophy and methodology of Maria Montessori’s approach to discipline and how her insights and methods, developed over a century ago, still inform our work today. Teachers will explore the three levels of obedience and the preparation of both the teacher and the environment. Teachers will survey the basic needs of children and identify how the Montessori classroom provides an appropriate framework for meeting our most fundamental needs. Teachers will learn how to create a classroom culture that includes the perfect balance of nurturing and reasonable limit setting so that children evolve, grow and learn to be self-disciplined and internally motivated to make positive choices in their ever day behaviors. Practical use of such skills and techniques as using Encouraging Language, Affirmation, Class Gatherings, I-Statements, Logical and Natural Consequences, and Firm versus Soft Language and Actions will also be presented and practiced. An overview of the strategies and skills children need to develop peaceable behaviors will also be introduced.
