The Dubai Ruler was touched by her warmth and positive attitude.

His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, took to social media on Wednesday to enquire about an inspirational teacher in the country.

The Ruler, who is known for investing in human resource development and education, asked netizens to identify a teacher in a viral clip - as she warmly welcomed students to school on a cold morning, putting a smile on their faces with her caring and loving attitude.


"A beginning of a school day in UAE, the beginning is different when a teacher has a beautiful soul, says good words, shows an honest smile, spreads optimism and true positivity among her students. Can someone identify her? We are looking for her," Sheikh Mohammed tweeted.


In the viral clip - recorded by the teacher - she can be heard welcoming the children to the school with motivational words and hugs.

Netizens were able to identify the teacher within hours and local media reported that the teacher was social worker Sheikhah Al Noaiymi, who works in Al Ain's Aliya School.

Al-Noaiymi thanked all of her followers on Twitter for sharing the video, saying that she is touched with the feedback on the video.

The educator said that she's proud and happy of her work, adding that she prays to Allah to make the students better for their parents and their country.
