Bonjour! My name is Chontelle. I am currently a student teacher in Tustin USD and a MAT candidate at the University of California, Irvine. I teach French in the hopes of connecting my students to the global community. Knowing another language offers opportunities to share knowledge, traditions, and perspectives like nothing else can. In the classroom, I work collaboratively with my students to make meaning out of sounds and text so they can take ownership of their learning. I hope never to stop learning or changing as an educator.
