French teacher Alex is an avid baker who makes cakes, cookies, and cupcakes for friends and family!
During this in-your-kitchen experience, kids will learn and bake the recipes for traditional French desserts: from crepes, to madelines, to sablés, and more. In longer experiences, they'll learn about the country of France and the regions from which their delights hail, create French crafts, and gain new French vocabulary as they travel through their experience. Bon appétit!
Alex is a French teacher who has been working in education for over 10 years. She currently works in K-12, but also has experience in the college setting as well as early childhood centers. She loves to travel, and has taken students to France on several occasions. She herself has traveled to France 6 times including a semester abroad when she was a student.
Alex is incredibly passionate about language learning. She is fluent in French, and beginning her own study of Spanish. With her students, her favorite are the moments when their language comprehension "clicks," and they have a new form of self-expression. In her teaching practice, she incorporates project- and practice-based methods, because she wants students to be able to use what they know.
