I strongly believe that teaching a language is more than just learning a foreign language: It is more about developing the Learners’ own style, their own thinking, their own manipulation of the language and of course getting to know other cultures and appreciate and celebrating differences. I have joined Safa British school last year and I really enjoy being part of this wonderful community and students learning journey.

About Me

I was born and raised in Djerba, a beautiful island in the south East of Tunisia. I studied at the University of Arts and Human Sciences in Sfax, Tunisia where I was awarded a BA degree in French Language and Literature. Since my brothers and sisters live in Lyon, I travel very often to France. I spend my holidays equally between Tunisia and France. I have started my career in Tunisia, as a secondary school French Teacher then I have moved to Dubai on 2005 where I have continued working as a French Teacher and I was offered the opportunity to lead MFL departments in several schools. 

Moving from Tunisia to United Arab Emirates 15 years ago, I never imagined that I would fall in love with Dubai as much as I have done. Meeting so many different people and discovering more about the rich cultures from which they hail means that I never stop learning! 

In my spare time, I enjoy travelling, socializing and keeping fit. I love to explore and learn about new cultures.

My Experience

After being graduated as a French Teacher. I have started teaching in a secondary school in Tunisia. 2 years after, I have moved to Dubai where I continued teaching French. 

I have been a teacher for many years and though I still intend to continue as such, I long to contribute to the field of education in a more meaningful way. This could come through the sharing of expertise and the. development of the person as a whole. I have worked   in many international schools in Dubai and I have gained rich teaching experience. My role involved teaching French from KS2 to KS5 and I being Head of Language departments.
