Principal’s Biography

Fatme 1

My name is Fatme Faraj, principal at Maples Elementary School.  It is an honor and privilege to be a principal to service our students and the entire school community. I have been working for Dearborn Public Schools for the past seventeen years.  My assignments included classroom teacher, reading recovery specialist, coach and interventionist.  Prior to this assignment, I had been an assistant principal at Lowrey School for the past five years. I hold a Bachelor Degree, a Masters Degree in Bilingual/Bicultural Education, and a Masters Degree in Educational Leadership from the University of Michigan Dearborn.

I love working with children of all ages and see them learn and grown to be life long learners and productive citizens.  I strive to create a school culture where all staff members truly believe that ALL students can and will learn.  Using data to drive instruction and focusing on School Improvement Plan implementation in a “No Excuse Culture” is my primary goal for Maples students.

I am most proud of the positive and trusting relationship that I have developed with my students, staff, and the school community.

When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with my children, family, and friends. I also enjoy spending my summer vacation with my parents in the village I grew up in-Bint Jbeil.

    This is my second year as a proud Maples parent; I must say that Mrs. Faraj is amazing with the students, the educators, and the parents. She takes the extra effort to make sure the school is running correctly; she also does whatever it takes to fix a problem within the school before it becomes any bigger. As an educated professional Mrs. Faraj sets the standards high for the students to become more intelligent and to represent Maples in a fond way! Keep up the good work and I look forward to working with you as a parent and friend in the upcoming years ahead…..

    • Mrs. Hachem,
      Thank you for your kind words. We are very proud of our Maples families, parents and students. I am looking forward to have you on our team!
      Mrs. Faraj
