Desert Sun Academy - room 303
Bonjour ! Je m'appelle Madame Croze.
I come from a small town in the South of France called "Tournon" but I have lived in Lyon for 8 years. I love to travel and I'm always happy to discover and explore a new place. I really like baking, I read a lot and I go to the movies at least once a week !
I became a primary school teacher 5 years ago and I have worked in Immersion schools in France.
I studied Modern Languages and Education at the University and wrote a Master thesis about the benefits of bilingual education for young children.
I am convinced that learning a second language, especially through immersion, is a great opportunity for the children. Students learn languages more easily at an early age. Immersing and instructing students in a second language provides an effective vehicle for students to learn to speak, read and write fluently in both languages. Students develop cultural literacy as well as enhanced cognitive skills.
It is essential for me to create a safe learning environment for all children. I want them to try, make mistakes, learn, grow, support each other and be proud of themselves.
I came to Arizona so that I could experience something new as a teacher !
