My name is Dana Sayel Obeidat a graduate of The Ahliyyah School for Girls year 2004, a mother of three beautiful children Layla, Zein and Sami, and a practicing dentist. Being an ASG graduate I always believed in the vision of the school and the message of empowering young women and men to be part of the society and the world, and the effect it had on my life as I implemented all what I have learned and lived in the school in all aspects of my life, relationships, career, and raising my children. I never saw a limit to what I can achieve and I want that for my children. As for my participation in the Parent Council, I believe it is time to give back to the school the support and time it gave me. I am aware of the school goals and mission and believe in them, and I can offer the time needed to attend meetings and events related to the parent council. In addition, to being able to feel part of the school family again, would be an honor!
I believe I can contribute positively to the "Parents Council". I am a firm believer in the system and I have seen first hand the results of the school. I have total respect to the school. It has a special place in my heart for being my first school, my wife's school, my sister's school as well as the school of many of my relatives. My Malak is 41" generation Ahliyyah! I aim to work in conjunction of the school to enhance and close the communication gap with the parents and help develop the school initiatives. I would love to see the school soar in its achievements and create a school-student-parents balanced environment. I do believe I have what it takes to add value through my background and process-oriented mind. I also have extensive teaching experience, I developed courses and taught aircraft performance and flight planning to pilots and flight operations staff. I know what it takes to be on the other side. Now I am retired, and taking care of my kids' homework, so I have the time and interaction to see and discuss matters with the rest of the team. A snapshot of my background: I was born in Amman in 1964, attended KG1 (bustan back then) at Ahliyyah School, then the rest of the school years at the National Orthodox School where I achieved GCE, equivalent to Tawjihi Scientific stream in 1980, plus Tawjihi Scientific stream in 1981. Holder of B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering since 1985 from the State University of New York at Buffalo in 1985 and M.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering in 1986 from the University of Michigan. Worked as Aircraft Performance Engineer at Royal Jordanian, my last position was Director Technical Support for the Flight Operations since 2013 until my retirement in 2020.

I’ve been active within other areas of the community and now that my daughters are attending A&M, I would love the chance to help and offer constructive feedback, as well as support the school and its staff. Participating in this council will create clear communication channels between the parents and the school as well as actively and constructively engage the community with important questions.
