Welcome to French class !

For course guidelines, select Bonjour –> Guidelines on the above menu.

I am proud to teach French at Saint Joseph High School for Levels 1, 2, 3 and 4 of the language.

I was born and raised in France, and earned my undergraduate degree in Computer Science from EPF, Paris. I worked for 10 years in Information Technology. In 1992, I moved to Pittsburgh. I am married and have two adult sons who are Saint Joe’s alumni.

In 2000, I started teaching French as a volunteer in middle school. When I lost my job in 2002 as a software engineer, I decided to focus my work on the education field. I began with private tutoring and since then have been teaching in various schools, to classes ranging from Kindergarten to 12th grade. I have been teaching in Diocesan schools since 2003. Before Saint Joe’s, I taught French at Oakland Catholic High School.
I feel blessed to teach at Saint Joseph High School. Each day I look forward to working with the students and helping them to discover new horizons through the learning of a foreign language.
Please feel free to contact me via email if you have any concerns or questions.

French, like English, is a leading language in the business world, with French being the second most learned language in the world after English and the ninth most spoken.
