Sept Abdelwahab(3)

    Background: Mr.Youssef Abdelwahab was born in Cairo Egypt but he was raised in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. He attended the University of Pittsburgh for both his undergraduate and graduate studies. After his undergraduate studies, he traveled to Chile to teach English for six months. Upon his return, he taught full time for a year at “The Falk Laboratory School” in Pittsburgh.

    Accomplishments: Mr. Abdelwahab was very fortunate to have the opportunity to obtain his Masters Degree in Foreign Language Education at the University of Pittsburgh. Over the summer of 2014 he received a Fulbright Hays Group Projects Fellowship scholarship to study Arabic, gender relations, politics and civil rights at Princess Sumaya University. He volunteered at Palestine and Syrian refugee camps in Amman, Jordan. Upon his return to the United States, he received his first paid teaching position at Crossland High School.

    Principals' Comments: Mr. Abdelwahab is a great asset to our school and the community. His level of expertise is superb and the students at Crossland absolutely love him. This is his first year at Crossland High School and he truly deserves this honor because of his outstanding performance, complete dedication, loyalty and professionalism.

    Why do you love teaching: It is very rewarding to see the young individuals of our society reach their potential and accomplish their goals. I love to teach because I have always understood it to be an art form, requiring a variety of qualities and skills. I am sure many teachers can relate to the ecstatic feeling one experiences after delivering a successful lesson or when one receives feedback from students through a glint in their eyes, homework well done, and students really taking an interest in their own learning and intellectual growth. In a nutshell, these are the reasons why I embrace the art of teaching.      


     Rico J Williams

    Background: Rico Williams is a senior at Crossland High School and he lives in Temple Hills Maryland. He plays varsity Football and runs Track. His current grade point average (G.P.A.) is a 3.2.

    Principal's Comments: I am very pleased to announce Rico Williams as our Crossland High School student of the month. He has progressed immensely in just a few years. He is a proud member of our varsity Football and Track team. Rico has a great sense of humor and his smile is contageous. Although he does not have the best grade point average at Crossland, he worked very hard to earn a well deserved 3.2 G.P.A. More importantly, he is a perfect example to all the students at Crossland, of how a little hard work, discipline and dedication, can lead to a successful outcome.

    Crossland’s boys soccer playoff run ends
    Strong season ends with loss to Huntingtown in 3A South Region final

    Crossland High School’s boys soccer players gathered for one final time as teammates Tuesday, and when the huddle broke, they removed their jerseys and placed them in a pile on the Temple Hills field.

    The Cavaliers had just lost to Huntingtown 3-0 in the Class 3A South Region finals. For some of the boys, that meant the end of a near-historic Class 3A state tournament run. But for others, like senior Rodney Ngoh, it meant the end of an era. (Read More)
