Samira Ahmed

A student of the Great Books of the Western World program, Samira Ahmed’s studies (undergraduate and graduate) have centered entirely on mastering the reading and analysis of the classics within the literary canon of Western civilization. This classical education has influenced her teaching style so much so that she incorporates discussion-based elements into her classroom while leaving time to provide instruction in an interdisciplinary manner emphasizing social and emotional learning and career planning. Her teaching heavily focusses on applied lessons that develop the neccessary critical thinking skills and style and voice of each student writer. In her free time, she maintains a grammar series blog on instagram under the social media handle ms_teacha.
