Discovering personal greatness in pre-school through grade 8 students - Burlington, Vermont

Delphine Giron

I was born and grew up in Nantes on the West coast of France. I graduated from the University of Nantes and moved to Paris where I earned my diploma of Professeur des Ecoles (Elementary School teacher) in the Academy of Versailles. I taught grades 2 to 5 in France, and then moved to the US in 2001 to be kindergarten teacher at the French American School of Rhode Island (FASRI). In Vermont, I continued teaching French in two after-school programs before becoming a faculty of the Mater Christi School.

When the first graders told me” Madame, where did you learn French, you have a very good accent!”
