Amid MaloufMath — Mr. Malouf joined the faculty of Collinstein Academy seven years ago, following in the footsteps of his older sister Yasmina. When he was a student at Collinstein Academy, he enjoyed solving complex mathematic equations as they reminded him of the puzzles that his sphinx family used to pose to each other around the dinner table back in the Dallas suburbs. As the math teacher for the upper school, Mr. Malouf now loves posing those same complex math problems to his students.

Yasmina MaloufScience/Homeroom Advisor for the Yellow Class — Ms Malouf has been teaching science to the upper school students at Collinstein Academy since she first started nine years ago.
