First and foremost, I am deeply passionate about education. This is why I am here. While my relationship with schooling as a child may have been, let's say, complex, I have always held firm in my belief in the transformative power of education and the potential for alternative approaches. In my teaching, I prefer not to rely on mere repetition of established methods but rather to explore innovative ways of imparting knowledge. Throughout my career, I have been fortunate to teach across three continents—Africa (Morocco), Europe (France)— and of course North America (USA) in institutions like the University of Miami, Bucknell University, and the University of Missouri. Interacting with students from diverse backgrounds, encompassing various identities, political affiliations, and socio-economic statuses, has been the most rewarding aspect of my professional life. I remain connected to some of my former students from a decade ago when, ironically, I was almost their age. As I embark on this new chapter of my professional journey at Dartmouth, I am exceedingly enthusiastic about the potential for personal and intellectual growth, both for myself and my students.
