My name is Ziad Abdulla. The 2015-2016 school year marks my 25th year as an Educator. This school year will be my first year at The Huda Academy as the Principal. I am very excited to work with such a dedicated staff, hard-working students, supportive parents and a caring community.
I was born and raised in Kuwait then moved to Jordan where I obtained a bachelor’s degree in Jurisprudence, Legislation and Guidance of Islam and a Diploma in Education Rehabilitation from the University of Jordan. In 1999, I received my Masters in Islamic Education with a Valedictorian Awards from Al-Albayt University, Jordan; I began my teaching career as an Arabic and Islamic Studies for both middle and high school levels. After teaching for eight years I moved to the United States and continued as Arabic and Islamic Studies for both middle and high school levels. After seven years of teaching in North Carolina, I decided to move to Dallas where I attained a career in administration in IANT Quranic Academy. In addition, I was an Arabic professor at Richland College, lecturer of Arabic and Islamic sciences at Suffa Islamic Seminary, and a member of the American Council on the teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL). I then went on to teaching at a private school in Doha, Qatar called Awfaz Global School for one year as a Principal.
When I am not at school I enjoy spending time with my family, my wife Rula, my son Mustafa and my daughter Zayna. My passions include traveling, sports, volunteering in different activities, and watching movies.
I feel honored to be the Principal at The Huda Academy. I look forward to all of the new challenges we will face together and to all the accomplishments we will achieve together.
