Bonjour! I’m really excited to be teaching grade 3 French Immersion at Ecole Barrie Wilson Elementary! I grew up here in Red Deer and am a Francophile. That means I have a great love for the French language and culture! My grandmother was French-Canadian and inspired me from a young age to learn her language. I was part of the first “Late French Immersion” program here in Red Deer and have been studying French ever since! After high school, I moved to France for two years to attend University and live with a French family. Upon my return, I completed a Masters in French language, literatures and linguistics and an Education degree at the U of A.
Previously, I taught grade five French immersion at Ecole Mountview Elementary. I love what I do! I find learning exciting and aim to make school enjoyable for all students. I believe in fostering a child’s curiosity and allowing creative expression of new ideas.
When I’m not working, I enjoy reading, and adventure travel. I have been to over 50 countries! Feel free to ask me about my adventures! I am looking forward to working with a new team of parents, students and staff. Together, we’ll have an excellent year!
