English Language Arts
Salam Alaikum to all the students, parents, and staff. I'm so excited to join MCC Academy this fall as the new English Language Arts teacher for Middle School. My name is Bara Elmasri and I have studied and taught English for many years. I have a Masters Degree in English Literature, and I've taught grammar, reading, writing, as well as listening and speaking at the middle school, high school, and university level. I love to travel, read, and spend time with my family. I speak both Arabic and English, as well as some French. Alhamdulilah for everything. I look forward to a healthy, happy, and knowledgeable year inshallah.
