Mrs. Kouthar Muttardy
I attended George Mason University where I received my Bachelors of Science
degree in Psychology, with an emphasis in Child Development. During that time
I gained experience teaching at the Pre-school level for three years.
Following my studies, I taught 9th Grade Special Education at Osbourn High
Schoool in Manassas City. Though my tenure was brief, due to my desire to stay
home and raise my own children, my experience there solidified my deep love of
teaching. While at home I volunteered as a 2nd and 3rd grade Sunday School
teacher for the Islamic Academy of the Muslim Association of Virginia, as well
as having served as the Curriculum Coordinator for the school. I helped
extensively in the development of their Islamic Studies and Arabic curriculum,
as well as in the improvement of school policies.
This year I completed my Masters degree and Virginia Licensure program in
Pre-K through 6th grade instruction at Marymount University. I graduated with
honors as a member of the Kappa Delta Pi International Honor society in
Education and received the Virginia Teacher Promise Award, the most
prestigious award granted to pre-service teachers in the country.
I am now in my fifth year teaching with Al Fatih Academy's dynamic and
inspiring educational team as the second grade teacher.
Al Fatih Academy’s vision is to be a model Islamic learning community that
inspires a commitment to excellence in all aspects of life. Its mission is to
cultivate and nurture a thriving American Muslim identity that balances
religious, academic and cultural knowledge and imparts the importance of civic
involvement and charitable work. Through an interdisciplinary and integrated
programming approach, we strive to create an educational environment that
unites students, teachers, family, and community to provide an exceptional
