Teaching is a huge fun part of my life and career. I'm very dedicated to helping my students achieve their learning goals. Meeting new students every year and sharing aspects of the Arabic culture and language with them are things that I cherish very much. If you are reading this and you are an SCU current or perspective student, I invite you to take my Arabic language and culture courses. My classes offer great opportunities to learn about the Arabic culture in a fun, uncomplicated way. Email me and I will send you all that you need to know about the Arabic program.
