Inquiry And Skills Teacher

Salaams TA Community! My name is Aziz Ahmed and I am honored to be working with our marvelous middle schoolers this year as the Middle School Social Studies and Skills & Inquiry teacher! I also serve as the Middle School Student Affairs Coordinator. I am a graduate of the University of Maryland, College Park where I studied Information Science with a minor in Nonprofit Leadership and Social Innovation from the School of Public Policy. I am very passionate about community building, so in my free time I enjoy volunteering with many different Muslim based nonprofit organizations ranging from engaging in youth work, education, and strategic development.  

Two learner profiles that I embody are inquirer and open-minded. Since a young age, I’ve always been invested in staying updated and informed by watching the news and engaging in complex conversations. This has transformed and transcended into a love of engaging in geopolitical conversations and understanding how what is happening around the world affects me and my community. I am particularly interested in learning about diverse cultures and languages. Fun fact, I am currently teaching myself French!
