I taught for over 16 years in several private and public schools in Maryland, before joining the CDC in 2008. My main goal in the classroom is to provide a loving environment for the children, where they can learn and grow. I am working on completing the credits required to obtain my Child Development Associate Certificate. I am fluent in French, Arabic, and Berber, and enjoy sharing these languages with my students, specifically French. In my free time, I enjoy traveling and spending time with my husband and three children.
