My Students

I love my French students--they come to class ready to put aside their teenage coolness and join me in goofy, child-like activities, all designed to help them remember the French they are learning. We sing, we move around, we repeat things in "Minnie Mouse" voices--these young people are willing to be silly in order to keep learning French every day. They also engage in the ongoing task of learning how language in general works, and I enjoy seeing my students continue to experience the accelerated learning that comes as their conceptual understanding of language grows.

I love watching my Spanish-speaking students make connections almost daily between Spanish and French, and I especially love to see how empowering that is for them.

They are much more invested in class when they connect what they already know to what they are learning, and they are enthusiastic about the opportunity to teach me and each other out of their knowledge!

My Project

Scholastic French-language magazines provide high-interest articles for high school students to read independently. Being able to use their new language independently is so enjoyable and motivating to young people!

As the students enjoy their growing ability to read French independently, the magazines also give them concrete glimpses into the lives of French-speaking young people around the world.

Giving students the opportunity to explore the lives of people from other cultures is one of my favorite reasons for teaching French! Not only does it open their minds to different ideas than they encounter in their day-to-day lives, but it also gives them insight into and better understanding of their own ideas and experiences.
