    Fall 2020 Supply List

    Madame 2015

    Welcome to the exciting study of French. In my class, we use comprehensible teaching strategies so that students learn to actually use the French language. I teach using storytelling methods that involve pictures, short video clips, and simplified reading texts. Students acquire French in a format similar to how they learned their first language.

    In addition, our French program features an exchange with the Lycée Saint Ouen in Pont-Audemer in the Normandy region of France. For students that pursue advanced studies, we have a branch of the Société Honoraire de Français, or French Honor Society.

    This is my sixth year teaching French at Alexander Central HS. I have previously taught in Charlotte Mecklenburg middle schools, Table Rock Middle, and Freedom High. I earned my Bachelor of Arts in French Education with a minor in History at Lenoir-Rhyne University. During this period, I spent a semester in Aix-en-Provence, France at the Institute for American Universities. I earned my Master of Arts in Romance Languages, French at Appalachian State University. I spent a summer in Paris and Angers during this period, and I also was a graduate research and teaching assistant. In my free time, I enjoy reading, traveling, and spending time with my husband, our son, and our cats.
