Nina Zaky – Instructional Coach

Ms. Nina Zaki and is extremely excited to be a part of the MET team. She comes to you with over 22 years of experience from the US, Dubai and Cairo. With a BA and MA in Education from The College of New Jersey, coupled with Tennessee state credentials and QTS status in the UK, Ms. Nina aims to provide our students with a high-quality education.

Teaching begins first and foremost with an effective teacher in every classroom. To ensure all classrooms have a quality educator, Ms. Nina works closely with teachers to improve the way students learn. As an Instructional Coach she brings evidence-based practices into classrooms by working with teachers and other school leaders. It is ongoing, job-embedded, and is aligned to curriculum and assessment. Its goal is twofold: improve teaching practice and improve student learning.

To improve teaching and learning further, we aim to individualize and target instruction through the RTI (Response to Intervention) model. RTI identifies students’ learning gaps and struggles so that educators can intervene with specialized instruction to improve academic achievement. RTI, when implemented with fidelity, improves instructional quality, and increases students’ chance of school success. RTI identifies struggling learners and uses targeted teaching to improve skills. A big part of RTI is measuring students’ skills using a scientifically based assessment and making data-based decisions to improve student learning.

With this instructional framework designed to empower teachers, increase teacher professional capacity, and individualize learning, we expect a lasting impact on students, classrooms, schools, and communities.
