Bienvenue! I am Madame Hansson, French teacher at Thompson Middle School. I teach grade 6 Exploratory French and 7th grade French IA and 8th grade French IB. I have been teaching at Thompson since September 2008. After graduating from the University of Rhode Island I lived in Denmark where I worked in a private international school. I then moved to Vence, France where I taught English in three local elementary schools.Here at TMS, my French students have the opportunity to travel to Québec, Canada or Europe on alternating years. Qualified students also have the opportunity to participate in Le Grand Concours, a national French Exam where students are ranked nationally based on their scores.Thank you for visiting. Vive le français!
