Bonjour!  My name is Michele Chalmeau and I am honored to be your child’s kindergarten or first grade teacher and largely immerse them in the world of French. This will be my tenth year teaching and my sixth year with the Minneapolis French Immersion program.  I am so excited to be here.  

I lived in Toulouse, France, for three years where I taught English to second through fifth graders, and I have also taught French Immersion to all different grade levels throughout the twin cities.  I am originally from Mansfield, Pennsylvania, where I received my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education followed by a B.S. in Chemistry and French.  I then completed my Masters degree in Natural Sciences and Environmental Education at Hamline University, in MN. 

I am looking forward to working with you and your child in reaching his or her full potential. We will have many wonderful experiences and opportunities to learn and grow in the days ahead.
