Assalamualaikum Folsom Educational Academy Families,
My name is Amira Elmukhtar and I have over twelve years of successful teaching experience in Early Childhood Education and Academic Intervention. I have a Master’s degree in Education (specializing in Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment), a Bachelor’s degree in Counseling Psychology, and an Associate’s degree in Early Childhood Education. I currently reside in Rocklin with my husband Abdalla. My children, Ahmad and Leenah, also live in California, where they work and attend college.
As your principal, I will promote the success of our students by implementing Folsom Educational Academy’s vision of learning and faith; which is shared and supported by the school and our community. I believe that “While parents possess the original key to their offspring’s experience, teachers have a spare key” (Ginott). Having this spare key is an honor that drives me to ensure that all of our students are engaged in the learning process in an environment that is safe and effective. As an educator, I have found the formative years of childhood education to be the bedrock of all learning to come. My passion in education is rooted in the desire to impact these blank slates through active validation, affirmation, and the belief that all can learn. As a disseminator of knowledge and a student advocate, I will anchor my duties on the central issues of learning, staff professional growth, and fostering an environment that is conducive to learning.
Waassalamu’alaikum Warahatu’Allah Wabarakatuhu,
Principal Amira Elmukhtar
