Walaid Zahra has been in the Education field for 15 years, working in both the classroom and administration. Growing up with four older sisters in Edmonton, he developed several strategies in conflict resolution, and mediation. After graduating from the University of Toronto, he spent several years in Northern Alberta teaching. It was during those years that he learned the most about kids, families, relationships, and the vital importance of connection. Today, he is still living in Northern Alberta teaching middle school, has three amazing children, and speaking to educators around the country about Tribes, and the importance of collaborative learning.
Walaid passionately believes in the importance of developing strong relationships with the people we lead and teach. He adamantly admits his best experiences, and learning come from working with fellow educators. Walaid approaches every session as an opportunity to learn things from each other, and giving one another the support to be a successful mentor for the students we teach.
His sessions are based on the Tribes agreements, they are interactive, and fun. Be prepared to laugh, learn, and have fun!
