My name is Anny Bello, and I am the 3rd grade teacher at Al- Aqsa Islamic Academy. I teach reading, writing, mathematics, science, social studies. I strongly believe that every child has great potential to become whatever their heart desires. I implement a growth mindset in my classroom which supplements my students with the confidence and encouragement they need to believe in their selves and thrive in their academic careers. I am considerably new to education and my focus is more science and health related, however, as of late, I’ve found a new passion for teaching and molding young minds. I am a mother to three young children all of whom are within elementary years, so I understand the importance of a strong, educational foundation within the early years.
The atmosphere at Al-Aqsa Islamic Academy is inviting and warm. There is a strong sense of community within the school and each child is given the one-on-one acknowledgement that they need. The staff are honorable and God-fearing—all the qualities needed to create an impact in our youth. All of us here share a similar goal: to nurture our future leaders who also represent our faith.
