Dear A’Takamul Kindergarten families,

My name is Margaret Ritchie Yanez, and I am honored and excited to be the principal of the KG Department at A’Takamul International School (ATIS).

I would like to take a moment to introduce myself, for those of you new to the department. This is currently my 3rd year as principal of the KG department at ATIS, with a long career in education of 23 years in Mexico, the United States, and in Qatar. During my career, I have taught every grade level from KG to University, I have been a school administrator in the U.S. for four years, and English coordinator in Qatar for one year.

I grew up in a bilingual and bicultural family where education was of the utmost importance. As an instructional leader, I will collaborate with you to ensure the success of your child. I believe that every child has the potential to learn and to succeed in their future.

Working collaboratively with you, we will continue to build a strong foundation of learning for all our students. Parents are every child’s first teacher and I believe that by working together we can make sure your child’s social, emotional, and academic needs are met.

Along with the amazing staff, I want to welcome each of you to the KG department.


I am looking forward to another amazing year.


Margaret Ritchie Yanez, KG Principal

A’Takamul International School
