Deema Abu Abdo
Hi everyone! I'm Deema Abu Abdo (pronounced A-boo Ab-doo) and I'm so excited to be learning alongside your small learners this year! This is my third year at Dutch Fork Elementary. I got my Bachelors of Science in Biology at the University of South Carolina where I was an undergraduate teaching assistant for organic chemistry. During that experience I discovered my love for teaching. Combine that with my love of children and teaching seemed like the natural progression! I went back to the Graduate School at USC and received my Master of Arts in Teaching in Elementary Education.
I speak both Arabic and English fluently so expect your kiddos to pick up on a few things throughout the year. I love traveling, skydiving, kickboxing, comic books, cooking, eating, and widening my horizons by trying anything at least once!
If you ever have any questions, feel free to email me. I'm always happy to explain how and why we approach learning the way we do in our room, even if it looks and sounds a little different.
