I am originally from Egypt and my native language is Arabic. I have always had a passion for language learning and teaching. I came to UofL for the first time in 2009 as a Fulbright Arabic foreign language teaching assistant and fell in love with the city of Louisville and the University of Louisville. I have taught a variety of courses including beginner and intermediate levels. I enjoy seeing my students develop a passion for the Arabic language and culture and become lifelong learners of this beautiful language.
