Ms. Courtney Capocci
Bonjour! I am honored to be part of the Mountain Brook Junior High teaching commnity for the 2020-21 school year. Although I have only been teaching French in the public school setting for 3 years, I have over 20 years of experience tutoring children and adults in the language. I was fortunate to be chosen to teach English to French students in 2001-2002 in a suburb of Paris called Meaux. In addition, I studied French for one summer in Dijon to complete some of my undergraduate coursework and have traveled all over Europe and Quebec. For me, French serves the purpose of opening doors to meet and communicate with amazing people from all over the world and to broaden my understanding of myself and the world around me. My goal is to broaden students' awareness of the diverse cultures of the French-speaking world while fostering a love for the beautiful language. I feel privileged to have your son or daughter in my class this year. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your child's French journey!
