Bonjour et bienvenue!

Bonjour et bienvenue!  My name is Kate Schindler (or Madame S) and I’m so excited to be your student’s 2nd or 3rd grade teacher this year!  I have wanted to be a teacher for as long as I can remember, and I am very much looking forward to meeting and getting to know all my students.  I started learning French over a decade ago and ever since my first class, I’ve been passionate about the language!  It wasn’t long before I knew I wanted to teach in French. 

I did my undergraduate education at Miami University in Oxford, OH and have a bachelor’s degree in both French and French Education.  I also just completed my Master of Arts in French at the University of Minnesota.  When I’m not at school, I enjoy cooking and crafting.  I truly love working with children and am so thankful for the opportunity to use the language I love to help your student achieve success and be the SUPERSTARS that we already know they are. 

If I can be of help in any way, please feel free to contact me via e-mail at
