Special Education Paraprofessional
Hamida El Mohammadi is a Special Education Paraprofessional at McKinley-Thatcher and has worked here since December 2021. Hamida was born and grew up in Morocco (Northern Africa). She is the mom of two beautiful girls, Sara and Salma, who are McKinley students. She graduated from high school in 2006 in Morocco. When she moved to the United States in 2009, she went to English school to learn the language for two years. After that, she attended the Community College of Denver and received her Associate’s Degree of Science in Accounting in 2017. Currently, she is taking online classes with Grand Canyon University seeking her bachelor’s degree of science in elementary education.
Hamida loves to work at McT because she likes the friendly staff and students and because she has always felt so comfortable being a part of the McT community, both as a parent and now as a staff member. Before working at McKinley, she worked at Columbine Elementary as a Paraprofessional for an MIS/MIA program, where she was supported students with Autism and Multi-Intensive/Severe needs for four years.
Some of Hamida’s favorite things to do are cooking/baking, swimming, and making art crafts with her kids. When she is not at school, Hamida likes to spend her time with her family and go to parks and the mountains.
