Living Our DPS Honoree
Hanan Al-Naqeeb
Teacher, McAuliffe International School

"Hanan creates an atmosphere of joy and rigor for her eighth-grade dramatists and is always living our Shared Core Value of Fun. Every student engages in their magical performances, and the journey to get there is so fun for all students. Any student of Hanan's will tell you that theater is their favorite class! And, lest you think that she's just easy on them, you should know that she's been a top-performing teacher for the past six years. When you find a well-loved teacher that is also an amazingly inspiring role model for her students, you know she's found ‘the key’ -- and for Hanan, that key is FUN!"
