Ms. Gina Ahmad
My name is Gina Ahmad, and I teach Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Education (CLD). I have been teaching for 15 years. I am originally from Chicago, Illinois. I have a Master in Teaching Elementary Education from Concordia University Chicago. I have taught Elementary grades, middle school, and College level English. My experience in teaching includes Chicago, Colorado, and overseas.
I love to spend my time hiking the majestic mountains and enjoying nature. I also like to do yoga and spend time with my dog. His name is Simba, and he is 23 months now. I am a mom and a teacher. My son has just won 1st place in the Strongman Competition Regional and is now training for the national level. My daughter is a Registered ER and Trauma certified nurse in Chicago. My youngest daughter is a senior at CU Boulder double-majoring in the Micro Cellular Developmental Biology (MCDB) and Neuroscience sector.
Teaching is my passion, and I am excited to help your child succeed academically. I believe that a strong teacher/child/parent relationship is crucial for your child's success and I anticipate instilling in your child the joy of learning and succeeding in school. Your child's unique and diverse qualities are what makes them thrive and become the best that they can be.
In our classroom, your child's diverse cultural and linguistic skills are an asset. I encourage them to use their unique and native language abilities to understand language and writing so that they can ideally achieve academic success.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
