Posted on 04/05/2021

Memuna Al-Baqer has been a valued member of the Antietam special education team since 2011 as a Teacher Assistant. She worked in the same ID classroom until she went out on medical leave in 2019.

Mrs. Al-Baqer passed away after a long battle with cancer on Monday March 22, 2021 and was laid to rest according to her family's traditions on March 23, 2021. She has a daughter, Afrah who is in 8th grade. And a son, Moeez, who attends UVA. Both of her children went to Antietam. 

Words from her teaching partner:

Memuna was a genuine and selfless person. She was a positive light in any room she walked into. I am so blessed she was a big part of my life the past 7 years. She taught me to live life to the fullest and I will continue doing just that in her honor. She fought so hard and leaves behind so many people that loved her dearly. I just wish we had more time with her. It's not goodbye but see you later.
