My name is Syeda Daniya Nizami. I go by Daniya with my friends and relatives. I have a Master's in Computer Science and recently completed my second master's in Information Systems from the University of Phoenix. I am a tenured computer science instructor and the lead instructor for our transfer programming courses (i-e, Python, and Java). I am also a CS/CIS advisor with 100+ advisee students. I have been with Highline for about seven years now. During Covid, I decided to continue my education and started my doctorate. Currently, I am pursuing my Ph.D. in Educational Leadership.

Syeda Nizami - Supporting Faculty Advising

Syeda looks forward to providing ongoing guidance and support for instructors in refining their advising practices, which she has learned both in and out of Highline. She wants to work on gaps in technology skills, brings in mentors, and keep learning events short and hands-on. Syeda wants to take the information she has learned in the past and enhance it for professional development.
