Zahra Hooda


Hello! My name is Zahra Mitchell-Hooda. Although I was born in Chicago, Illinois, I consider myself a Texan through and through! My teaching background includes traditional preschool and Montessori, and I have loved melding the two to be able to create a thriving environment for all children! I took some time off to be at home with my three boys but had continued to volunteer my time in a program that focuses on creating quality early childhood education for children in developing countries. This year I am so excited to be able to be a part of the Custer Road Christian Day School team and work with some amazing teachers and kiddos!

Family Members: Husband- Hussain; Children-Ailesh (Went to CRCDS), Kais (Currently enrolled), and Eymen (Starting this year!)

Hobbies and Interests: I love to DIY and my second life passion is definitely Interior Design!

Favorite TV Show: New Girl

Dream Vacation: A year long world tour exploring places and new cultures.

Favorite Scripture Verse: “Let all that you do be done in love” 1Corinthians 16:14
