High School French Course Specialist

Lydie was born and raised in Paris, France where she completed her Bachelor of Arts. There she travelled throughout Europe (Spain, Italy, the Netherlands, Greece, and Switzerland) to improve her knowledge of Foreign Languages. She moved to London, England in 2004 and after completing her Bachelor of Education at the University of Uxbridge, West London, England, she taught French, Italian and Spanish in a Comprehensive  7-13 school for four years. It was there that she met her Italian Canadian husband-to-be who convinced her to move to AB Canada, where the weather was allegedly very pleasant. 

They settled in Hinton, AB for the next 5 years where she taught French and Spanish from Gr.4-Gr10. There she familiarised herself with the Alberta curriculum in Jr High/ High School in French and Spanish. Lydie also had the opportunity to teach a year to a Kindergarten French Immersion class.

Since the year 2016, Lydie and her online science teacher husband have been residing in Red Deer, AB where they have been homeschooling their two wonderful children for the past 5 years. It has been a wonderful experience, and they feel extremely privileged to be able to instil a love of learning in their children, to build strong family values, and to be able to witness their children grow into well-rounded individuals. In her rare but valued spare time, Lydie enjoys going to church, leading and teaching Sunday school, reading to her children and occasionally to herself, crocheting (she is self-taught. Thank you YouYube tutorials!), playing the cello and exploring Canada during the short summertime.
