Bonjour et Bienvenue

Madame Zaporoshan is the French teacher at FAMS. She is a native French speaker from Paris, France. Although she has been living in the United for over 20 years, she still has many family members still living in France and therefore travels there often. Madame received her B.A from the George Washington University and her M.A from the American University, both in Washington D.C. She is a certified to teach all ages from Kindergarten through high-school. Madame loves the French language and all things French and is looking forward to sharing this love and enthusiasm with all the students at FAMS.

Teaching Philosophy

My goal is to instruct the students at FAMS to appreciate the benefits of learning a second language. Students will learn the language through conversational practice, as she will conduct most of her lessons in French only. Students will also have opportunities to explore historical, geographical and cultural elements of the French language through multi-media presentations. All of this will be done in such a manner that the student will WANT to learn the French language

HOMEWORK POLICY:

The district recognizes the imprtance of homework as part of the educational process and has adopted policy #6154 that establishes homework guidelines. Homework posted on this website is as up to date as practically possible, is subject to revision, and serves as a guide for students and parents

Remember that you start off with a 100% for HW for the marking period. If you miss any HW assignements, I will deduct 5 points from that 100. So let's say you miss 3 assignments, you will receive an 85 as your marking period grade for HW
