Ms. Debbie Atanasio

My name is Debbie Atanasio and I have had the pleasure of teaching at Mariam Al Batool since 2008.

In 2007 I graduated from the University of Malta with a Bachelor degree,and a Post-graduate Certificate in Education in 2008. I returned to the university to earn my Master degree in Family Studies,in which I graduated in 2014. I am currently studying for a Post-graduate Diploma in Educational Leadership and Management with the University of Nottingham.

I am a life-long learner myself, and my passion in teaching is to instill a love for learning in students by challenging them. During the course of my studies and work, I have encountered many obstacles that I have solved with hard work, determination, and a positive attitude.

Teaching isn’t just a job; it’s a mission. Our goal as teachers is to teach basic academic skills. However, I firmly believe it’s important for children to develop a good moral character, respect for authority and respect towards their peers. I believe that given the right environment, all children have the capacity to learn,and I am here to help them achieve their dreams.
