“We are ACA. We empower our community with knowledge, spirit and service”  



I am honored and humbled to be the school’s principal and part of the ACA family. As an educational leader of an Islamic School, it is my goal to maintain the highest standards of academic and Islamic education. 

With a Doctorate in Education and over 14 years of professional experience as an education administrator and leader, the goals that I set for myself and the future of this school are high. My aim is to establish and maintain an open line of communication with students and families, ensuring that quality of education and instruction are being delivered to the highest standards, and creating a safe and orderly environment that fosters social, emotional, and academic growth of our students.

I am continually proud of our school's accomplishments, from the student’s academic and social achievements to the staff’s commitment in providing excellent leadership and service to our students and families. As a community, we work hard, keep learning, have fun, and develop great friendships.

The heart of any school begins and ends with the people who enter it every day. We are fortunate to have a strong community here at Arizona Cultural Academy. It makes the heart of our school very strong and centered, sharing the same values and principles and working together as a community to provide only the best for our future generation. I am pleased to have the opportunity to be surrounded by individuals that share the same goals and great pride in ensuring their children receive the best education possible in an Islamic environment.

I am a firm believer in open and meaningful communication between the school and families. My door is always open, so please take the time to stop by. May Allah S.W.T guide us and make us all among his firm believers, Ameen.
