Oaks Christian Online School’s French teacher, Rachael Williams-Mejri has been hired for an overseas position in Dubai, within the United Arab Emirates. She will be teaching Ab Initio (or from the beginning) French for the first time and learning more about the French International Baccalaureate progam, which she can apply to her online teaching as well. She is also enjoying the local sites and culture. Some of her favorite adventures have been enjoying afternoon tea at the Burj Al Arab and Burj Khalifa hotels. “The Bufj Khalifa hotel is the tallest in the world and gives new meaning to the term high tea,” says Rachael, “It is just amazing to take in the architecture that doesn’t exist anywhere else in the world.“
Ms. Williams-Mejri has a love of the French language and has travelled extensively to learn more. She received her BA in French and English from Louisiana Tech University and her MA in French from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. She also went on to receive her MBA from Saint Leo University, and she has all but her dissertation completed at Louisiana Tech University, one of only three universities in the world that offer advanced degrees in Francophone Studies. She has also done immersion programs at Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières and Middlebury College in Vermont in order to improve her French speaking skills. She has taught in public and private high schools as well as at the college level. Rachael has taught in Virginia and Louisiana and now teaches for the Universal American School in Dubai as well as online for Oaks Christian Online School.
