    Lecturer (2012-Present):
    I have been working as a Lecturer at the Biology Laboratory in the Department of Anatomy, Biology, and Histology, College of Medicine, University of Duhok in Duhok, Iraq since 2012. My primary responsibility is to teach first-year medical students for two modules: "Molecule, Gene, and Diseases" and "Tissue of the Body." In addition to medical students, I also teach practical biology laboratory sessions to first-year students from the College of Pharmacy and the College of Dentistry. These laboratory sessions provide hands-on experience and reinforce theoretical knowledge in biology.

    Since 2016, I have also been serving as a Visiting Lecturer for the Medical Laboratory Technology Department at the Technical College of Health – Shekhan, Duhok Polytechnic University in Duhok, Iraq. In this role, I teach medical genetics lectures to third-year technical students. Although this is a part-time position, I dedicate one day per week to deliver engaging lectures and facilitate learning in the field of medical genetics.

    Reporter (2018-2019):
    From 2018 to 2019, I worked as a Reporter at the Department of Pharmacy in Ararat Technical Private Institute located in Duhok, Iraq. Along with managing and supervising student activities, I was responsible for teaching Human Physiology lectures to first-year technical students. This role allowed me to combine my teaching expertise with administrative responsibilities, ensuring a well-rounded learning environment for the students.

    Throughout these teaching experiences, I have developed strong instructional skills, effective classroom management techniques, and a deep understanding of the subjects I teach. I am committed to creating an inclusive and engaging learning environment, fostering critical thinking, and providing students with the necessary knowledge and skills to excel in their respective fields.
