Hi ! My name is Elly and I am starting as a French teacher at LLS this fall! I just moved to Brooklyn from Ohio, where I graduated with a BA in French Literature from Kenyon College. I’ve been passionate about learning French for the last ten years, and teaching it for the last three.

I spent a year studying history and philosophy at the Sorbonne (Paris 1), and have spent summers in Corsica, Brittany, and the Cevennes region. Alongside my studies, I’ve taught French at Kenyon College at the introductory and intermediate levels for three years where I designed lessons to nurture greater fluency and sophistication in spoken and written French. I particularly enjoy integrating film, art, and music in lessons to foster curiosity and interesting conversations in the classroom.

Above all, I’m delighted to continue teaching French with LLS! I’m very much looking forward to being a part of LLS and its growing community of learners. this coming year!
