Laila Yaghnam

5th Grade Teacher

My name is Laila Yaghnam and I’m Temple University Graduate. I received my BA in English
Literature in the spring of 2021. I would describe myself as a kind, hard-working, dedicated
Muslim woman who spends most of her free time picking up a new book to read. I think our
religion is a huge factor as to why I work at Al Aqsa Islamic Academy. As educator it is my job to help shape the children’s mind and prepare them for college. As a Muslim educator is it my job to strengthen their faith and help them practice Islam to their full benefit.
