Hey my name is Noha.... Egypt!! That's where I grew up:)

I am originally from Egypt, I met my husband in 2006(of course he wasn't my husband then:))) he's Egyptian too but spent most of his life in the U.S., we met while he was visiting. Long story short we got married in 2008 and I came with him to the United States!
I have a B.A. in Graphic design, which i received from Fine Arts University "Alexandria, Egypt". Prior to that I was enrolled in EGC "English girls College" since I was in 1st grade, it's an Egyptian-English school, that's how I learned English;). I want to become a Math teacher:)))I always loved Math, and I think I am pretty good at it.

I am very excited about this class because I always wanted to use my computer skills when I teach. since I have a B.A. in graphic design, I didn't want to disregard what I learned for 4 years. I wouldn't say I am proficient using computer, but I am definitely good with Photoshop, Illustrator and MS office suite. So I wanna learn how to use this in my teaching career.
The COE mission statement was for sure a part of my decision when I applied to CSUSM. "The mission of the College of Education community is to collaboratively transform public education by preparing thoughtful educators and advancing professional practices." CSUSM is really committed to produce educators that can improve public education, and I wanna be one of them!. Also since i realized when I came here that the U.S. is a big ethnic "melting pot", it is very important that teachers would commit to educational equity, and social justice. Technology can be the key to help every teacher bring students from different backgrounds together in class.
