Heather taught French at Albury HS for 24 years before retiring in 2014. During that time she organised 10 study tours to France for my students. She has lived and worked in France 3 times, including a year on teacher exchange in 1996. She believes that learning a language broadens our view of the world and loves seeing the joy that my students experience when they finally realise that they can express themselves in French, and that others understand what they are trying to say!



Beginners Year 2

Leigh is originally from Adelaide and has lived in Albury for the past 5 years. He has travelled extensively throughout Australia and the world, visiting every continent except Antarctica. After studying French in both highschool and university he lived and studied international relations in Paris, Grenoble and Santiago. His love of languages stems from the desire to have meaningful conversations with people from around the world and to learn from their different cultures. He is currently a language and geography teacher at Albury High.




Marion has been teaching French in Albury since 1980. She started both the Border Modern Languages Teachers' Association and the Albury Alliance Francaise as support for teachers and students of the district. She is passionate about the importance of languages as communication in the mad world we live in. She is quickly identified as 'the Northern Irish French Teacher'!




Josephine was born and raised in Strasbourg, and moved to Australia 5 years ago where she completed a Master of Teaching. She is now teaching secondary Mathematics by day, and French at the Alliance Francaise by night. She is passionnate about languages and the cultures associated with them, and is eager to share her knowledge and expertise with her students.




Born in France and educated in Belgium, Paule has been teaching French since 1986 in Melbourne and from 1997 in Albury. As one of the founding members of Alliance Française Albury-Wodonga Paule is passionate (or rather pedantic) about correct pronunciation and particularly enjoys assisting those preparing for travel to French speaking countries.
