Monique Seefried is a commissioner of the World War One Centennial Commission (June 2014 to the present). A French citizen born in Tunisia, she spent many years in Italy, France, Austria – where she met her husband – and then Germany. From her many experiences abroad, she developed an incredible open mindedness and, above all, a taste for diversity and cultural differences.
More than thirty five years ago, life brought Monique to Atlanta, where she decided to dedicate her time to others in two domains she particularly values: history and education. First, she taught courses on Islamic art and ancient archaeology as an adjunct professor in the art history department of Emory University. Next, she was curator of Near Eastern art at the Michael C. Carlos Museum.
Finally, in 1999 she launched the Center for the Advancement and Study of International Education (CASIE). CASIE serves as a professional training center for foreign language and International Baccalaureate (IB) teachers and offers workshops on multicultural diversity in the classroom.
