Miss Amelie Leparoux
Bonjour et bienvenue!
This year will be my 13th year teaching French and my 3rd year at West Leyden. I taught all levels of French at Jefferson high school in Rockford for 10 years. I was born and raised in France and came to the United States in 1999. I have a passion for teaching and for sharing my culture and language with students. In my spare time, I love to travel the world and discover other cultures. I have taken students to France several times. In June of 2017, I took 30 Leyden students to the Auvergne region and to Paris. French students came here last Spring. This past spring as well, 14 students from East and West went to Brittany, Normandy, the Loire Valley, Paris, Versailles, Nice, and Monaco.
This year, I will be teaching French 1, 3, 4 Honors and AP. I also sponsor the French Honor Society and the Foreign exchange program at West Leyden.
