Jana Majed Husseini

Jana Majed Husseini was born in Ghana, Accra. She was raised there and lived there for 20 years. She was in the Lycées Française d’accra, then went to Lebanon for a better and higher education. She graduated BA at LIU with a degree in Early Childhood Education and got her TD in education from LIU as well. She has no IB training. Her philosophy of education is to be a mix of progressivism and existentialism.

Progressivism because she believes that the individuality, progress, and change are fundamental to one’s education. Believing that people learn best from what they consider most relevant to their lives, progressivists center their curricula on the needs, experiences, interests, and abilities of students. Existentialism because she believes in the importance of individual existence, freedom, and choice. During her leisure time, Jana enjoys some reading and always finding a way to learn new things.

She has always been passionate about kids and this is why she choose this major. Her mother used to teach and since she was a kid she has always wanted to be like her mother who inspired her more and was her role model and her motivation. Jana had many observations in different schools and the more she saw teachers teaching the more she wanted to became a teacher, she was fascinated and wanted to be like them because she believes that every child deserves to be taught at their own pace and within their level of cognitive and motor skills. She wants to make a change in the future world by making changes and educating kids who will make those changes someday. Her dream is, to one day be able to open a fun Daycare center where kids can play and enjoy their time, it can also include hands-on activities for them to do too.
