Meet The Teacher

Name: Tasneem Ismail

Role/Position: Academy Support Staff | PM Extended Day

Grade Level Taught: All ages

Educational Background: 

  • Major: Curriculum Designing & Advanced Instructional Methods
  • Graduate: University of Wichita Kansas

Professional Background: Ms. Ismail has worked with all ages as a certified teacher, long term substitute and an assistant teacher! Here at the Academy of Excellence, Ms. Ismail is primarily our Afternoon Extended Day teacher, and is always willing to help out where she can.

Teaching Philosophy: I believe teaching is a prophetic profession and it can only be fruitful when it is done with passion, along with wisdom. I also strongly believe that this is the only profession through which you can touch the lives of individuals directly, and can help transform those lives immensely. 

Interests and Hobbies: I strive to provide kids with a solid learning experience while entertaining them by utilizing fun tools & activities. I would also like to apply recognized approaches to ignite their thirst for knowledge/learning and to make their experience with me a lifelong memory.

What accomplishments would you like your learners to achieve?: I would like for each of them to be a kind and well mannered human being who is well equipped with problem solving skills. I also would like to learn how to cherish their success with grace and pride, while at the same time, encouraging others to get up when they fall down. I would like all of my students to be TRUE LEADERS.

Mrs. Dunigan


What Parents Like You Have To Say

"The teachers REALLY care! I can't say that enough. It is everything. I HIGHLY recommend this place. They are flexible and the kids come out so advanced. I will miss them dearly when my son leaves there after kindergarten, but as soon as my daughter is old enough, she will be there!"

"This school is AMAZING. They have gone above and beyond to exceed my expectations. We miss the staff tremendously. I find comfort in knowing I have found a place for my 1 year old to experience and enjoy just as much as his big sister does. "

"We have had a child at Academy of Excellence for almost six years and plan on doing so for another three more at least. I’ve always said that this isn’t just a school- it’s a family. It’s more than just a school because not only is the learning top notch, but the kids acquire important life lessons and how to value all those around them."
