Cumberland Academy of Georgia, Inc., a SACS-CASI accredited, private, non-profit independent school dedicated to students with special needs, welcomes a new addition to the faculty. Ms.Taha Yarahmad will be leading the Math and Physics programs. Ms. Yarahmad earned a Master of Science degree in Physics from Clark Atlanta University. Prior to that, she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Philosophy concurrently with a Bachelor of Science degree in Physics from Mercer University.
“We are so fortunate to have Ms. Yarahmad as a part of our faculty,” says Mrs. Debbi Scarborough, Founder and Headmaster of Cumberland Academy of Georgia. “Her experimental, hands-on approach to learning will enrich our students’ experiences as they learn. During the first week of school, Ms. Yarahmad’s students made a rocket, and with the help of a car battery, blasted a collection of rockets 300 feet up into the air! A simple aerodynamics lesson resulted in our students also learning teamwork, critical thinking and listening skills, not to mention the excitement of seeing their invention launched into space. I am excited to see what she will do during the second week of school.” Ms. Yarahmad will also be leading one of our Enrichment classes, the newly-formed Robotics Club.
