Bienvenue à tous en classe de français ! My name is Nordine Boulhais. I am very excited to start as a new French teacher for the last trimester at Westfield High School. A little bit about me: I was born and raised in northern France and have been living in the USA since 1998 -the year my country won the soccer World Cup! (Can you tell that I am a huge soccer fan?!?!). I am a graduate of the University Charles de Gaulle of Lille (in Northern France) where I earned a PhD in History. As a student, I traveled extensively and participated to several International volunteering camps in several countries. Then, I left home to teach at the Lycee Francais de Chicago where I taught French civilization: History & Geography (in French) for almost two decades. In 2016, I began my quest to teach in an American school. I have since received an Illinois Transitional Bilingual Educator License in French and an Indiana Professional Educator’s License in French and Historical Perspectives, Geographical Perspectives, Economics & Government & Citizenship. Working in collaboration with my colleagues, I look forward to bringing my advanced and native knowledge of the French language and culture to create a passion for France and its beautiful language for all of our students! A bientôt!
