    French and Spanish Teacher

    Déborah Châtillon

    I studied at the University of Lille 3 and gained a Master in Humanities and Social Science with honours in Language Science in 2012. I also have a Bachelor Degree in French-History-Law and in French Literature. I decided to teach abroad after being a French assistant in Yorkshire. Indeed, I found it very rewarding to teach my Language to non-native speakers and, that is why, in 2011, I did the PGDE course at the University of Glasgow. I then taught Languages in Scottish secondary schools for five years. I orchestrated the delivery of Spanish lessons across Years 7-11 and French at Primary level - Year 13, developed the New Scottish Curriculum and tailored resources. I also conceived and, with colleagues’ support, orchestrated and implemented new assessments for different level which resulted in significantly improved educational attainment of pupils.
