Bonjour! My name is Marie Bardjis Renteria (Madame) and I am new to Alvin ISD. This is my twelfth year teaching Secondary French, and I am so excited to be part of the new Iowa Colony High School. I grew up overseas as a TCK (Third Culture Kid) and moved to the US when I was 19 years old. I attended California State University, Chico and then moved to Texas and completed my Bachelor of Arts degree in French with a Minor in Humanities at the University of Texas in Arlington. Because of my upbringing, I enjoy teaching students, not only the French language, but also the importance of embracing different cultures and languages.
