After completing and passing very rigorous entrance tests, I was accepted in the IUFM (University Institute for Teacher Training) of Valenciennes in France(1993-1995). While there, I successfully passed the very competitive "Concours" and completed my studies in Childhood Education (Elementary: multiple-course instruction, including student teaching as an intern in a primary school). I was then named "Professeur des écoles" ( Master's+), the only Credential accepted by the French National Education system (Education Nationale Française) for teaching on the Elementary level in France. I was licensed in1994 and tenured in 1995 (Université de Lille & Education Nationale).
Over the years, besides working as an Elementary Teacher, I was also appointed Principal (while also teaching) in 2 schools in Brittany. At this point, as I was getting more and more involved in humanitarian causes, I took a leave to go teach in Lebanon. During 4 years there, I served as French teacher, as well as Principal and Pedagogical Coordinator in 3 schools. During this time I became directly involved in providing aid to underprivileged Palestinian refugees and poor Lebanese. I also volunteered with pedagogical coordination, as well as with providing educational materials in both a French and an English Immersion schools. After returning to France, I taught in the Lorient and central Brittany areas. In 2012, I joined Académie Lafayette in Kansas City (MO) where I am thoroughly enjoying teaching my Third Grade students.
