Samia Baccouche

Teaching Assistant

I was born and raised in Sousse, Tunisia. I studied English language and literature at the Faculty of Arts and Human Sciences in Sousse, Tunisia and went on to study linguistics at the Faculty of Arts and Human Sciences of Sfax, Tunisia.

I have worked as a parent volunteer at OIS since last year and previously I have taught children English at a secondary level. My teaching experiences have been diverse, as I have worked for three years in Tunisia and one year in another international school here in Doha. I entered the profession of teaching because I am passionate about making a difference.

I am married and have two girls. We have been living in Qatar for over 10 years. We have four cats, all of which were adopted here in Doha. In my free time, I enjoy travelling, reading novels and scuba-diving.

I am thankful to Oryx school for giving me the opportunity to be part of their family. It is a fantastic school with amazing facilities. My aim is to do my utmost to make sure the children receive all the support they need to thrive in their education.
