Ibrahim Alofi is currently the Vice Dean for the College of Education at Taibah University in Saudi Arabia. He studied in OPIE, and then he graduated from Ohio University with a Ph.D. in Curriculum & Instruction in 2014.
Ibrahim said Athens is a “…small city of good Saudi families. It’s like a big family in Athens.” He said that he had some great teachers in OPIE, especially Cindy Holiday and Heather House. According to Ibrahim, his writing improved because of Heather House.
Ibrahim’s advice to current OPIE students is to practice and not rely on other students. It is important to try to listen and correct your own mistakes.
