Bienvenue! I'm so glad you're here!
2017-2018 is going to be an amazing year for you and for me!
We are moving forward in building our second language skills and by now I hope that you are in love with the French language AND French culture.
For my new students, my name is Valerie Ellison. I was born in Québec, Canada. I graduated from the University of Memphis and I am a mom of three amazing kiddos. I love teaching, but I love teaching French because it is part of who I am and I get to share that with you everyday.
For my returning students: I am so thankful to have walked this journey with you. Let's continue to explore new French skills and reinforce the ones you already have mastered! .... I am so glad to have you back.
For parents: As we continue to encourage student to take ownership of their education, I remain in awe of how much parent involvement we have at BHS. Behind every good teacher, there is an involved parent.
The best way to stay connected is to join my REMIND group: ellisonfr
Remind is a free app that allows you to stay aware of important information that is relevant to French. This information pertains to homework, projects due, deadlines.. ect You can download the free app or simply text @ellisonfr to this number: 81010
Mandatory virtual supplies for students:
1. Remind Group: ellisonfr
This is also a way to text me directly when there is an emergency.
During school days up to 5pm. Texts after 5pm will be addressed the next school day.
2. You must be able to access your virtual textbook at all times. It is your responsibility to obtain your login and passcode from me. If you lose it, communicate this to me so I can help resolve the issue.
3. Edmodo is our virtual classroom.
Make sure you have joined your assigned classroom.
( If I am absent from class, DO NOT RELY on the sub to give you an assignment. I will ALWAYS have an assignment for you on EDMODO if I am absent. It is your responsibility to open your virtual classroom and complete and turn in your assignment for this day. )
Syllabus for French 2, French Honors 2, French 3 and French 4 will be available on this page shortly. You can add this page to your favorites for accessibility.
