Together we can help students in the rural Mississippi Delta to experience world languages and cultures. I teach French 1 and 2 to high school students. Language and culture are permanently intertwined; it is impossible to fully understand francophone culture without having a grasp on the nuances of the spoken language. Before I began teaching a the school, the school did not have a French teacher for several years. During this time, the school continued to offer the class with a permanent substitute teacher who had no previous French background. As a result, my students come to me at all different levels of knowledge and skill. Some enter passionate about the world outside of the Delta, while some enter hoping for an easy A from that permanent substitute. In a town stricken by poverty, one of my biggest challenges is convincing my students that they have access to the world outside of the Delta.
