Somar Mowakket

Academy Deputy Principal,
Arabic and Islamic Coach

Marhaba! My name is Somar Mowakket, and I am an Academy Deputy Principal at WSO, a Pedagogy Coach for Arabic and Islamic education subjects. My interests are languages, cooking, bodybuilding, fine art, DJ-ing, quantum physics, astrophysics, and vegetarianism!

I started as a specialist in foreign language teaching, education and teacher training after receiving my teacher education and certification from top UK institutes and intensive training in Asia. In 2007, I participated as a change management consultant in a public-private partnership project in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. Then I joined high ranked and top performing academies and educational institutions in the Middle East at different capacities ranging from educational leadership, to management consultancy and advisory. I just recently came back from two years working in China as an academic director for an ed. Tech company where I contributed to the design and development of cutting edge A.I. powered e-learning and online education solutions with novel methodology and technologies including adaptive non-linear learning programs and courses.

I hold two MA degrees from the UK: MA in Educational Leadership and Management (University of Warwick, UK), and an MA in TESOL (University of Sunderland, UK), along with 5 different teaching and education certificates.

The purpose of education is to make everyone uncomfortable: that if we are comfortable, we are not pushing learning boundaries! I believe in developing high order thinking skills where students distinguish themselves, in creating new information, from machines that process them.
