My name is Durriyyah Rahman. Durriyyah means brilliant and glitter from the Arabic origin. I grew up here in Portland, Oregon and spent some time in Gresham too. I graduated from Roosevelt High School and Concorde Career College as a Medical Assistant. After spending some time working as a Medical Assistant I realized it wasn’t for me; so my other choice growing up was to be a teacher. I’ve decided next year I will start taking classes at community college to begin my journey in education. Working here at PVS is a great opportunity to experience what it’ll be like to work with kids in an elementary school and I’m very happy to be here. Outside of work I have a son who will be one year old in December, so most of my time is dedicated to him and watching him grow and learn everyday!
