Mr. John Trenton

I am a Pennsylvania native (Go Pens!) that landed in Arizona several years ago to embark on a career to become a chef. After hanging up my chef coat, I decided to pursue a graduate degree in French with a the goal of teaching the language and culture with an emphasis beyond the Hexagon. My graduate studies focused largely on Francophone literature, primarily Algerian literature of French expression, and how notions national identity are formed, expressed, refined, and diffused through literary discourse. I enjoy working with International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme students because of the type of learners it attracts and it allows me to bring in my expertise beyond teaching language.
