Bentley School
Middle School French Teacher
Oakland, CA
Coucou! I just finished my second year teaching middle school French at Bentley School in Oakland, CA. Bentley is a K-12 independent school in the Bay Area, and we offer French beginning in Kindergarten, as a core class in the Middle School, and through post-AP seminars at the Upper School. My students are in 6th, 7th, and 8th grades, and I teach four levels of French in year-long mixed-grade classes.

Last year, I taught my first year of middle school and graduated from UCLA with a PhD in French & Francophone Studies. My research examined the representation of the Algerian War for Independence in Algerian bande dessinée, and I love to use this popular medium in my classroom and to teach about the Francophone world via postcolonial studies.

This year, our middle school participated in Le Grand Concours for the first time (with some medalists!), and we established an academic chapter of the Jeunes Amis du Français. I would love to hear from others who have on-campus experience with Le Grand Concours and/or the Jeunes Amis du Français to brainstorm ideas for this upcoming year.
