Mme Hanna has been very successful in coordinating, developing and teaching a French Program that meets and then exceeds the Ontario Ministry of Education’s Core French expectations. With programming offered to all our Braemar students from the Prep One Program on, Mme Hanna has created and coordinates a relaxed yet active learning environment where students feel comfortable and enjoy learning a second language through various hands on projects. She encourages students to learn from each other and assist each other in the learning process, while responding to curriculum requirements as well as student needs. As a Francophone who grew up in Africa and studied in France, Mme Hanna brings more than 20 years expertise in the classroom, and an international awareness and travel experience that make her lessons alive and relevant as students explore the cultural diversity of the Francophone world. She is as well a trained facilitator of the Virtues Project, which forms the basis of our character development program at Braemar. She also coordinates and delivers the Citizenship Curriculum for Grade 7 and 8, which focuses on issues of social justice.
At the end of every day, it is my hope to have inspired a student to think, and even better, to say “Learning French is fun!”, and many years down the road, to share with others how rewarding it continues to be! - Madame Hanna
