Hello students,

Religion is very important in Morocco. There are many mosques located in the country. Many public places have areas for prayer. Some shops and other types of businesses usually close for prayer.

Examine the picture of the Great Mosque located in the city of Casablanca.

Post at least one fact about Islam.

Elementary school visit


Middle School visit

Hello students,

I had an opportunity to visit a middle school. In this class students are at the beginning stages of learning English.

I had a chance to talk with them in small groups and I was able to completely understand their English. They are doing a great job. We talked about food, Arab Idol and music. The girls like Justin Beiber, so I showed them a video of Alfredo who thinks he is Justin Beiber. They enjoyed that very much.


High School

Hello students,

These are pictures of the local high school that I have been teaching at. The students are extremely respectful and value teachers.

I teach Monday-Saturday from 7:15 until 1:00pm. I love working with the students, they are engaged and want to master the English language.

My goal is to build a cultural bridge between the students in Morocco and my students in New York City.

I showed the students in Morocco pictures and videos of my students and they want to meet them all.

Post a comment, let me know what you are thinking.
