The introduction of French language education in the After School Programs leading to participation in Le Congrès de la Culture Française en Floride, is the brain-child of École Française, Gainesville Founder/ Director, Judy Dharini Charudattan, who is also Teacher of French with Blue Wave ASP at P.K.Yonge Developmental Research School, Univ. of Florida, Macs Charter School, Micanopy, and Alachua County Public Schools.
