A Typical Day in French Class
Grading System and Homework Policies
Grades are based on a point-value system. For example, a single homework assignment may be worth 3 points, while a test or a project may be worth anywhere from 50 - 100 points depending on the content being assessed.
In order to become proficient in French, students must practice new skills taught in class by doing homework. Late homework due to absences is accepted with full credit. Late homework is accepted with partial credit within reason.
Learning a foreign language can be challenging at times. I am available for extra help by appointment. Extra help sessions are held after school.
About the Teacher.
My name is Mary Tetreault (pronounced tay-tro) and I have been a teacher in the Arlington Central School District since 2011. In high school, I was curious about my French-Canadian heritage and I decided to explore the language of my ancestry by taking a French class. I continued my studies in college. I've been passionate about French ever since and my life is enriched by my knowledge and continuous study of the subject. It is a privilege to share my love of French with your children each day and to watch their academic growth. It is my hope that my students learn not only to communicate in French, but also develop a lifelong interest in this beautiful language and global culture.
