Imke Herold is originally Dutch but has been living and teaching in Amman since 1995, and has held Head of KG and Primary positions in several schools. She was introduced to Jolly Phonics whilst teaching at IAA and has since been a strong advocate, having seen the excellent results achieved due to the programme. She has conducted many workshops for teachers and parents, and relishes the opportunity to enthuse others and share her passion.
Dina Qbeiwi is a pre-school and Kindergarten teacher with over 10 years of experience, teaching English to children from Arabic, English and other backgrounds. She is a strong believer in Jolly Phonics for she has used the programme with different age groups and has witnessed its outstanding results from her students, as well as deep satisfaction from their parents.
Dina is keen to share her successful journey of the Jolly Phonics programme and pass her experiences on to other teachers to give them a better understanding of the programme’s approach and how to best apply it in their classrooms.
