Ms. Sands is new to ASM and is very excited to be in Marrakesh. Born and raised in Northern Virginia, she attended the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, VA. After, she ventured to Thailand to teach English as a Fulbright ETA, where she loved living, learning, and teaching in a new culture. She returned to her hometown and taught first grade for 2 years before deciding to again join the international educational community. Not only does Ms. Sands love teaching, but she loves learning about her students' families and their traditions. She also enjoys traveling, taking photos, sports of all kinds, reading (especially children's literature), and most of all laughing.
Ms. Latifa is excited to be working with first grade for her second year, though this is her sixth year at ASM. She has also worked with KG2 & 3 students, and loves the children at our school. She has her Masters in Business & Communication. She loves cooking international foods and working with kids. She knows so many students and we are lucky to have her with us!
