Lubna NajarUpper School English
Lubna teaches English in the Upper School. “I create opportunities for students to think deeply about rich works of literature, to discuss and build interpretation, and to write clearly and purposefully.”
Some of Lubna’s electives include Family Stories and 20th-Century Fiction: Excess and Restraint.
