KIPS Staff


KIPS Manager

Hello, my name is Maryam, I hold a BA in Child Studies/Education from Concordia University, Montreal, QC, Canada with distinction. I have more than 11-years experience in the education field. I was an active member of different voluntary organizations like, “MAHAK Society to support children with cancer (1995-2000), UNICEF Canada (2003 – 2008), BATSHAW youth and family center, Montreal (2008-2011), Cystic Fibrosis Quebec association (2009-2010). I voluntarily biked 2000 Km cross-country in Canada to collect support for socially at-risk children in 2009.

My expertise is curriculum designing for pre-schoolers and my goal is to give children an opportunity to be seen, heard and appreciated. 

KIPS Assistant Manager

Hi. My name is Sofia. I’m Portuguese and a mother of two wonderful boys. I had been lawyer for all my life and moving to Qatar gave me the opportunity to live my great passion: being with children.

Back in Portugal, I created the parents’ association (aka PTA) at my children’s school and developed a project for the center of leisure for children after school time. That project is still running in my sons’ old school and also at the center for kids. As a president of PTA, I was also responsible for the extra- curricular activities throughout the school year for all classes. It was the beginning of an adventure that led me to a new passion and gave me the experience to apply here at KIPS where I started as Dragonflies teacher and now playing the role of assistant manager.

Coming to work every day is a joy and being surrounded by children is beyond wonderful. I am grateful and really happy to belong to KIPS TEAM!

Each day is a discovery, learning, and adventure. As an experienced teacher, I had acquired innovative methods of teaching that I can utilize here at KIPS. It has been a pleasure to be part of KIPS team.
