Dr. Erin Higgins


I have been teaching French all levels 1-AP since 2006. I graduated from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign with a major in French. I spent the academic year 2004-2005 studying abroad in Montpellier, France. After graduation I taught all levels of French 1-AP in Los Angeles from 2006-2017, where I received a Master's Degree and a Doctoral Degree in Education from UCLA before moving back to Chicago to be closer to family. 


I have three brothers and three sisters, and an even bigger extended family. I grew up in Hoffman Estates, IL and attended Schaumburg High School. I was a competitive cheerleader and participated in Concert Choir, French Club, French Honor Society, and Foreign Exchange Club, and NHS. 


I live with my fiancé and two dogs in Irving Park. I love coaching soccer and cheerleading, reading, and traveling.
