Webinar – Visions for the future
Meet Salwa Shareef, principal of the SIRA school in Jericho. The SIRA schools in Bethlehem and Jericho are the only schools in Palestine completely focusing on special education.
Education is the foundation for the future. But for children who have trouble reading and writing, schooling isn’t always an opportunity for development.
– I wish we could accept more children in the long waiting line for the school, says Salwa Shareef.
– Some more visions for the future are to be able to develop the important work addressing the parents, and in the future to be a resource for the whole educational system.
Salwa Shareef is a trained sociologist at the Al Quds University and is working at the SIRA school since the mid 1990ies. She started as a social worker and substitute teacher and became the principal in 1997.
