Madame Taylor

Bienvenue à la classe de français avec Madame Taylor!

Welcome! Whether your child had me as a French teacher last year or not, I am excited to share my love of the French language and the vast array of cultures from different French speaking countries with your child and your family! Your child will learn a lot more than just French language in this class and s/he will be able to increase his/her English, Geography, History and critical thinking performance with this class.

**Be prepared to print assignments from this website**

Due to budget constraints, our copy budgets are very limited again this year. I am going to try my best to post handouts online. This means that you will have to print them in advance to bring to class. I will only make a very small number of copies of assignments/handouts to have in class and will expect that you will print the appropriate papers BEFORE class. Thank you for your anticipated cooperation to help us out during this tough time.
