Help us welcome Abeer Shinnawi to the team!
Re-Imagining Migration is thrilled to welcome Abeer Shinnawi to our team. She will take on the position of Program Lead where she will support our network of partner organizations and schools, lead professional development, and create resources for K-12 educators as well as cultural institutions.
Shinnawi is a veteran middle school social studies teacher who has used her own upbringing as a child of immigrants to help connect students, schools and communities. Throughout her career, she has worked with schools, cultural institutions, and publishers to provide curriculum, content, and activities that reflect BIPOC students and teachers. Before joining the team at Re-Imagining Migration, she worked as a resource teacher in the Baltimore County Public Schools Office of Social Studies, leading curriculum development and supporting teachers. In addition, she served as an equity liaison and the co-facilitator of an affinity group for teachers of color. She also created and facilitated a student support group that provided safe spaces for immigrant students.
