Salam Alaikoum and hello! 

Welcome to Ajial’s Kindergarten and Elementary Department for the academic year 2019-2020.  I would like to take this time to introduce myself to you.  My name is Linda Walters and I am both, American and Kuwaiti.  I grew up in the US, in Indiana and moved to Kuwait once I graduated from university in 1985.   I have lived in Kuwait since that time, which was 34 years ago.  I have 4 wonderful children and 1 beautiful grandson.  This is the start of my 30th year in private education in Kuwait.  I have worked at 5 private American schools over these 34 years, starting out as an Elementary teacher in 1988.  I worked for 18 years as an Elementary teacher and the last 11 years in administration.  I started my years in administration here at Ajial as Elementary Coordinator and then Vice Principal.  I held that position for 5 years.  After that I moved to establish another new private American, Islamic school and was School Principal for the past 6 years.  I am now happy to be back home again at Ajial as the Elementary Principal.  I’m looking forward to guiding both, our students and staff in the hopes that we are helping the students reach their academic goals, InshAllah.  I look forward to meeting all the KG and Elementary students and parents and want to welcome you to another successful year, InshAllah!
