Mrs. Dupuis, or Madame, as her students call her, is the type of teacher every child deserves to have. She fosters growth and passion through immersion trips and French events throughout the school community (for example, French poetry contests and the French Ciné Club). Madame takes an active part in educating students based on the world around them, including world events and world cultures into everyday lessons. She uses music, traditional stories, and even fashion to explain the ways that the French language is celebrated throughout the world. A very thought out class curriculum, Madame spends the necessary time to reach outside of the classroom and inspire young adults. To conclude, Madame Dupuis is one of the teachers who has inspired me to go into education myself. She has become one of my most trusted allies and mentors.
Mme Dupuis uses techniques that are varied, exciting, and often cutting edge. Her teaching provided the solid foundation for both my children to continue French study in college. One has since received a Bachelor’s degree in French and both were inspired by Mme to travel internationally and spend semesters studying abroad.
Madame Dupuis is perhaps the best foreign language teacher I have ever had. Her passion for teaching is clearly visible in everything she does. She is constantly learning new techniques to enhance the learning experience and caters every lesson to the student that she is teaching in order to ensure that the method that they are learning is the right one for them. From Quizlet Live, to Google Classroom, she knows the right thing for everyone. In all honesty, Madame is an amazing teacher who can teach anyone to love the art of the language.
Not only is [Anne’s] French impeccable, not only is her accent beautiful, she is an exemplary role model for all of us in the profession. I have always admired her ability to adjust and adapt all aspects of her teaching – lessons, assignments, projects, etc. – to suit the age and interests of each particular group of students, and every individual student as well. I have observed the kind and supportive role she plays in her students’ lives not only as a colleague but also as a parent when my own two children were lucky to have Mme Dupuis as their French teacher!
Prior to studying with Señor Bouvier, I had no foreign language experience. He not only brought me to conversational fluency in Spanish, he taught me to appreciate the immense variety of world culture.
Señor Bouvier is honestly the best Spanish teacher I have ever had, and that includes professors I have had since moving on to college. When I started learning the language in his Spanish II class freshman year of high school, I had no idea what I was doing. I could barely speak the language and was only able to write very simple sentences, often with many errors. But by the end of that class, I could speak fairly well and my writing dramatically improved. I can honestly say Señor Bouvier is the reason I grew to love the language, and is much of the reason I became so talented with the language.
Señor Bouvier creates the best kind of environment for learning a language.
Dan is an incredibly effective, enthusiastic and dedicated Spanish teacher. His love of the language and culture is evident in his work with students and their remarkable successes.
