Columbus High School Welcomes Ms. Fakih

By: Melanie Chan

This year, Columbus High School welcomes a new 9th-grade Honors Literature teacher and yearbook advisor, Ms. Fakih.

She previously earned an undergraduate degree in English at Columbus State University. Currently, she is pursuing her master's degree in education there as well. 

Besides her previous experiences as a substitute teacher, this is Fakih’s first year teaching.

Fakih notes, “High school was a really positive environment for me, and I realized I could combine my love for literature with the culture of being in school.”

When asked about her thoughts on being the advisor for the school’s yearbook, she says, “it  was something that I never thought I would be doing. I was a little scared, but excited as well.”

One of her literature students, Kayal Sankar (9), stated that “Ms. Fakih [...] helps us understand what we’re doing and always encourages us to think outside the box. I always feel comfortable expressing my opinions in different discussions and activities we do.”

When asked to provide a message to the students of CHS, Fakih said: “Thank you so much for being such a welcoming student body. I really appreciate the open arms.”

Outside the classroom, she invests her time in exploring food, with her most recent obsession being Korean food. With an interest in athletics, Ms. Fakih also likes to play tennis and golf.
