Walaa Elsayed

Assistant Principal - Arabic and Islamic studies

I started with GEMS in 2016 and have had the privilege of leading Arabic and Islamic departments across different GEMS schools in various Emirates. This experience has provided me with a wider scope to examine school needs and an in-depth knowledge of different inspection bodies. Currently, I hold the positions of Assistant Principal of Arabic and Islamic as well as Executive Senior Leader at GEMS FirstPoint School - Dubai.

With a Master's degree in Education Leadership, Management, and Policy, I bring both academic knowledge and practical experience to my role. 

As a mother of two children, I deeply appreciate the importance of a family-oriented approach to education and value the GEMS family spirit that permeates our educational community.

In addition to my educational leadership roles, I am also a published author. My book, "An Inspection Campaign," is a collection of short stories published by Qindeel Printing and Publishing and I’m a member of the Emirati Publisher Association (EPA).
