Revised E-mail


It is my pleasure to introduce my student teacher, Suzanne Damra! Ms. Damra will be under the direct supervision of myself until the end of the 2015 school year, inshaAllah.  Below is a mini-bio about her!



Greetings! E’ssalamu Alaykum! My name is Suzanne Damra. I am thrilled and honored to be student teaching under the direct supervision of Ms. Sanna Khan, for grades 6th, 7th and 8th English Language and Composition, until the end of this year. A few interesting facts about me is that I am currently a senior at North Park University in Chicago. I will be receiving my Bachelors of Arts in English Literature (Secondary Education) as well as certification in Special Education, InshAllah, in June of 2015. I have taught for my Mini- Teaching clinical experience at Mary, Seat of Wisdom, in Park Ridge for a 6th grade English Literature class. I am also a member of Sigma Tau Delta, the International English Honors Society. As a student at North Park University, I have participated in extracurricular activities such as being a member of MESA, which is Middle Eastern Student Association. I have also worked a few different jobs, including retail and currently work part-time at Misericordia, Heart of Mercy, in Chicago, assisting with a population of individuals with special needs. I can speak fluent Arabic, and have traveled abroad to Amman, Jordan. Some of my hobbies are reading, spending time with family, and watching foreign films. I look forward to this wonderful experience at MCC Academy with students, staff, and family members.
