Lena Villavicencio, a native French speaker is no stranger to teaching French in a full immersion setting. She comes with 15 years’ experience teaching including 10 years the Alliance Française de Houston, a recognized organization with over 1,000 locations around the World.
In addition to creating the French curriculum at both the Village school and the French Alliance, she uses culturally based projects as an important assimilation tool to help students learn. Working with diverse cultures in an international environment allows her to tailor her teaching methods to reach the class as a whole, as well as students individually.
