Before moving to the US, my family and I lived in Alexandria, Egypt. I earned my Bachelor of French language and literature from Alexandria University and my M.Ed. in curriculum design from UNT. During the past eight years, I worked as a Middle and High school French teacher at Boswell High School and Westlake Academy. I taught all French levels, including AP and IB. I enjoy cooking with my husband and our daughter, Rita, a fourth-grader in CCA, and creating new recipes inspired by Mediterranean cuisine.
