About – Hamza Salameh
Hamza Salameh is a Chicago native and first-generation college graduate. He received his undergraduate degree from the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign in Mathematics and his Masters of Arts in Teaching from the Relay Graduate School of Education. His desire to work in education was sparked from his own experiences with inequity in education, specifically for those at the margins. In 2015, Hamza began his work with Noble Schools at Johnson College Prep as a Math teacher. It was through his work in the classroom that he was really able to see the impact that the classroom experience can provide for students. After 4 years in the classroom, Hamza wanted an excellent classroom experience to be true for all students and transitioned into leadership through the role of Dean of Instruction for STEM. He now serves as the Assistant Principal of Instruction overseeing academics for the school. It is his goal to provide an equitable and positive educational experience for all students and drive excellent outcomes aligned to the Anti-Racism Commitment, The Noble Community Pact, and The Noble Classroom.
