Next Steps

I must start by thanking Mohamad for inviting me to write a guest blog. It’s a great honour!

I started blogging to share information and ideas with mainstream classroom teachers and parents. I wanted to raise awareness and share tips that can make our lives simpler as parents and teachers, but more importantly, I hoped that my blog might support some students who otherwise could get lost in the vast labyrinth of education.

The City of Brotherly Love

Philadelphia is a historic city that’s very rich and diverse in culture. It’s also known as the “City of Brotherly Love”. Many flock to Philadelphia to take a stroll down the cobblestone streets in Old City, visit the Liberty Bell at Independence Mall, take a run up the Art Museum steps (while yelling Adrienneeee in your own Rocky Balboa’s voice) or to gobble down our world known Philly Cheesesteaks. I’ve been a resident here for almost 20years and I can’t image growing up in any other city. Philadelphia is a fast paced city during the day and offers an eventful nightlife. If you’re single or have a family there’s always something here for everyone to enjoy. Please click on VISITPHILLY.COM for attractions and events.
