New French Teacher Loves The French Language

Story by: Rachel Fettig

It doesn’t matter where you are from or what language you speak.

Teaching a language requires passion and, of course, knowledge about the subject. Walaa Hosameldin, South’s French teacher for the year, (subbing for French teacher Amy Raml)is originally from Egypt.

Hosameldin started learning French when she was a child.
While she still lived in Egypt, she taught French at a university and she has taught French for about five years.

Not only does she know how to speak French, she can speak three other languages, Arabic, (her first language,) English, and a little bit of Turkish.

However, the only language that she formally teaches is French.

“I love the language, it is spoken in a lot of countries as well,” stated Hosameldin.

When Hosameldin came to the United States, she first lived in Illinois, but went back and forth from Illinois to Egypt.

When she started looking for a teaching job, she got a call from South High here in Sheboygan. Even though she lives two hours away, she thought that she should give it a try.

Junior Alex Stone, a French student at South said how she likes the way Hosameldin teaches because she makes sure that the students understand what is going on.

“She is a nice person, an awesome teacher, and is really good with the students because she befriends them,” stated Stone.

Hosameldin explained how the staff and also the students have been helpful and great as well.

“I like the atmosphere here and the staff is so nice and helpful,” said Hosameldin.

Hosameldin added that she likes working at South and hopes to stay for more than this year.
