My name is Doaa Mohamed Moursy. I am an Egyptian woman who was born, and stayed the majority of her life in Kuwait. I am married and a mother of a boy and a girl. I am British educated. I had my school years in two schools, the British school of Kuwait in Kuwait and had my IGCSCE from the English girls’ college in Alexandria, Egypt. I had my bachelor degree from faculty of Fine Arts in Alexandria, Egypt. At the beginning of my career journey, I wanted to be an interior design. However, I did not find my personality in this field. My father, who is the most adorable person in my life, advised me to try teaching and that he thinks I will find myself in teaching. My first teaching years was at the Egyptian American School in Alexandria. I worked there for two years. I was teaching high school students. The difference in age between the students and myself was about five years only. It was a joy teaching there. Two years later, I was engaged in Kuwait and worked at the English School for girls. I continued my studies and received license to be an IGCSCE assessor from Cambridge University. I continued working at the English school for Girls for 5 years. I was blessed those years with an amazing Australian Principle, Ms. Margaret. She taught me how to be a professional art teacher. Then I moved to Al Bayan Bilingual School to start a new chapter in my life. Teaching at Al Bayan was like a dream. A very well-known school, where you will gain an excellent experience. The first day I entered this school one of the teachers whispered into my ears, have the MIDDLE SCHOOL students respect you and love you and you will succeed. From this moment, I worked on this piece of advice. My goal every year is to have an enjoyable school year with my students. In our school, our students work a lot. I expect Art for them a relaxing productive time. We enjoy working while listening to music, sometimes working while chatting about different life issues. Teaching teenagers is not easy, but it would be if you have the trust of your students. One of the best projects my students are having this year is to recycle tires into useful and usable things with an artistic touch.
