Ms. Claire Kennedy

Welcome to the French program! I am a National Board Certified educator with 25 years of experience teaching French to secondary school students. As a French native, I have first-hand knowledge of the French language and culture, which is why French is my subject of predilection. My college background includes a bachelor's degree in English and a master's degree in Business Administration with a major in International Trade. On a more personal note, I am caring, dedicated and dependable. In my opinion, the role of education is to equip individuals with the necessary skills, values and knowledge to compete successfully as productive citizens in a diverse global society. This year, I am looking forward to helping your child learn about the fascinating cultures of the French speaking world and to making their yearlong journey a positive experience that will last a lifetime!
