Al Huda Academy Board of Directors,

I had the pleasure of working alongside Ms. Mona Dakrouri in the formative years of establishing Durham's local Islamic elementary school. As the principal and the educational leader for the school, Ms. Dakrouri was instrumental in establishing and developing the Islamic Studies and Arabic programs, which are widely recognized as the most excellent programs available in the area. Ms. Dakrouri had to create and develop these programs from scratch--setting down the foundation, identifying the proper tools and resources, and creating the core aspects of the daily lessons. As part of the development, Ms. Dakrouri conducted workshops on the materials and held one-on-one development and coaching sessions with the teachers to train them on how to create standards and engage the children with creativity. As the curriculum was implemented, Ms. Dakrouri provided the teachers with continuous feedback through periodical observation and evaluation in order to strengthen the content delivery and ensure the children were progressing in the material. The results were positive and exciting. Children who had no prior training in Islamic Studies and Arabic quickly excelled in these subject areas and demonstrated a love of the material. I was impressed with Ms. Dakrouri's approach and the results we achieved in the program speaks volumes about her expertise and her dedication to drive results.
