School Leadership

Awo Mohamoud, Jigjigayar

My name is Awo Mohamoud. I was born in Norway but have spent most of my life in the UK in the city of Birmingham. I also lived and taught in a school in Cardiff, Wales. I graduated from Staffordshire university with a BSc in Psychology and Criminology. The study of humans and why we do what we do has always been an interest of mine. I then did my Master’s in English Language Teaching and Applied Linguistics at Coventry University. I met many international students and my love for teaching English grew here. I have worked with children ages 11-16 teaching them English and humanities subjects. I moved to Somaliland to work at Kaabe for one of our campuses in Jigjigayar with my three children, two of which attend Kaabe. I love what Kaabe stands for and I’m passionate about my work here in Somaliland.
