Principals' Messages

I am honored to be a part of Al Bayan Bilingual School as we progress through another school year. My name is Nada Darwiche, and I am the Acting Principal for the Elementary School. 

I am Lebanese and I’ve been working in education for more than twenty years, with eighteen of those years right here at Al Bayan Bilingual School. As for my own educational background, I have a degree in teaching Arabic Language and Literature, and a Masters of Arts in Educational Leadership. I also worked on a Masters in Islamic Studies. I began my educational career as an Arabic Language and Religion teacher, was appointed to Elementary School Deputy Principal in 2007, and appointed to Acting Principal in 2017. I continue to feel the same passion and excitement in my career as if it were my very first year in school.

Our hope this year is to keep working towards creating a better learning environment and to keep BBS as one of the best schools in the area.

With warmest regards for a successful school year,

Ms. Nada Anis Darwiche

Acting Principal



When I was a little girl, I dreamed of being a teacher. For the last 16 years, I have been living my dream. It has been a blessing to call Al Bayan my home for 4 of those years.

As an educator it is important to be constantly a studying. I have a Bachelor’s of Arts in Elementary Education and Spanish. I also have a Master’s of Arts in Educational Leadership.

As an educator I believe that schools need to work in partnership with families to help educate the whole child. It is important that we intentionally teach students things like respect and kindness. When we are able to create a school family, we have a connection that will ensure student success. I believe that by becoming a TRIBE’s school Al Bayan has made an important step in ensuring that teachers, parents and students make a lasting connection with each other and thus improve the overall educational experience at BBS.

I know that this year at Al Bayan is going to be phenomenal and I look forward to working with each one of our families.
