About Mme Evelyne


Born in Québec City, my first language is French. Like most of your children, I learned my second language in kindergarten, but for me, that language was English. I have been a French immersion teacher for eleven years, eight of which have been at South Sahali Elementary. I graduated from the University of British Columbia (UBC) with a Bachelor of Arts in honours psychology where I completed my thesis on childhood language acquisition. I then completed a Bachelor of Education at UBC with a specialization in French immersion education. I will be completing my Masters of Education in June with a research project on building the classroom community.

I am the lucky mother of three wonderful children, Owen (grade 1), Liam (4yrs) and Ella (1yr) who have taught me so much about myself, children and teaching in such a short amount of time.


My teaching philosophy involves creating a collaborative learning community of students, parents and staff. I apply many strategies from the Reggio Emilia philosophy, the First People’s Principles of Learning and socio-constructivist theories of education. These include the importance of the learning space, a connection with our natural environment and hands-on inquiry. As such, (current health and safety standards permitting) students will often work in pairs, groups and as a class in flexible spaces. They will use many different materials and strategies to show their learning. Peer and class discussions occur daily and questions are always encouraged. I work hard to maintain consistent routines, develop student independence and maintain high expectations throughout the year.

Meet Mme Courtney!

This year, our class will be hosting a teacher candidate from the Bachelor of Education program at Thompson Rivers University (TRU). Here is a little about Mme Courtney:

Bonjour!

My name is Courtney, and I will be student teaching in Mme Evelyne’s class for a total of 13 weeks throughout the 2021/2022 school year! I am currently enrolled in the Bachelor of Education program at Thompson Rivers University and will graduate in May 2022.

I was born and raised in Kamloops and attended Lloyd George Elementary and later South Kamloops Secondary. This means that I understand how challenging French Immersion can be for non-Francophone students, but I also know how rewarding it is to be fluent in 2 languages now as an adult. I am so excited to be doing my practicum in a French Immersion school!

Fun Fact: Both Mme Hunter in the library and Mme Mabee, our principal, were teachers of mine in elementary school!

When I have free time, my hobbies are hiking, cooking, spending time with my adorable dog, Lillie, and reading! I LOVE books of all different kinds, and one of the areas of education that interests me the most is literacy and fostering a love of reading in kids at an early age.

After graduation, my goal is to teach early elementary French Immersion. I would also like to eventually return to post-secondary education and earn my Masters in literacy education. I look forward to meeting all of our students this September and learning as much as I can about French Immersion education!
