Ms. Katie Gilliam

Bonjour! I'm Madame Gilliam, and I've been teaching at James Clemens High School since 2015. I currently teach all levels of French, from level 1 to level 5 (AP). I have been teaching middle school and high school students since 2006, including some time in France teaching English as a Language Assistant!

I hope that learning French together will help you to feel confident reaching out to French-speaking people and exploring French-speaking places, as well as help you to understand and be comfortable with many different cultural experiences. Communication is essential to helping us understand each other and to cooperate globally. I'm excited to have the opportunity to help you develop this new and empowering skill!
