Ms. Sakina Syeda

Welcome to my page! 

I recently graduated from NEIU with my teaching degree in English secondary education. I had the opportunity to do my student teaching at Amundsen High School in Chicago, IL. After graduating in December, I taught 9th and 11th grade at Stevenson High School in Lincolnshire, IL. I have enjoyed teaching and tutoring Arabic since I was 16 years old, and I am ecstatic to began my journey of teaching English at East Leyden High School. I will be teaching English II and English IV Humanities in the upcoming school year. 

When I'm not teaching, I enjoy reading young adult novels, cooking, traveling, camping, exploring new places, and spending time with my husband and three kids (ages 4.5, 2.5, 11 months).
