Mrs. Hakari



My name is Salime Hakari. It is my honor to be a 6th Grade Teacher at New World Educational Center for eight sensational years. I have been blessed to be teaching in this amazing school that has a nurturing, loving, comforting, trusting, and safe environment. Children have the privilege to learn new skills and become lifelong learners through the resources offered here.


My philosophy of teaching is that each child is unique, in which they learn and grow at their own pace. I have been in education for quite some time and have worked in a myriad of schools and grade levels. I have studied and lived in many countries, but I received my degree in education from Arizona State University.


Originally from Turkey, I am married to a great husband and we have two wonderful children. My son goes to University of Arizona in Tucson and my daughter is a senior in high school. I love spending time with my family and friends to go shopping, traveling, and discovering new things every day.


I look forward working together with you and your child to have a positive impact on his or her growth and development!!
