I emigrated from Lebanon to the United States in my teenage years. I am happily married and a mother of two Merdinian alumni. I also enjoy cooking, baking, needlework, and nature.

There are pre-schools everywhere, but Merdinian is unique—it is an Armenian Evangelical school. I love teaching chapel in the mornings and instilling Christian truths and values in the children.

* It is a privilege to watch a child grow from a seed into a flower.  Every child is unique and therefore, it s the teacher's duty to improvise the proper approach to help the child succeed.  I believe in providing a supportive learning environment that is safe, creative, and open so that the child learns the important aspects of developing and fostering positive relationships with others.
