Our French program is led by our two language teachers, Madame Emily and Madame Katelyn.
Madame Emily has always loved learning languages. Growing up in the UK, one of her earliest memories was being on holiday in France and wanting to understand what her French friend on the climbing frame was saying to her. As part of Emily’s teacher training, she spent a month teaching in a French school in Amiens near Paris. She really enjoyed working with the children there and being immersed in the French culture. Emily can’t wait to share her enthusiasm for French throughout the school from Prep to Year 6. She loves all things musical so will enjoy bringing this into the classroom. Emily is also a real foodie so she is looking forward to the French food topics coming up!
Madame Katelyn grew up in Canada attending a French primary and secondary school. Being passionate about the French language she continued her studies in French and in 2016 graduated with an honours degree in French Studies. Katelyn took a leap of faith and moved to Melbourne in July 2018 to work as a Casual Relief Teacher. Here, not only did she fall in love with the amazing city of Melbourne but most of all she loved teaching Prep to Year 6 at PMPS. The students at PMPS can expect to be greeted with a warm smile and positive energy by Madame Katelyn throughout the 2019 school year.
