Faculty Friday: Adeline Courtial

Adeline joined the Roycemore team this school year as Early Childhood, Lower School, and Middle School French Teacher. Originally from Nîmes in the south of France, Adeline grew up with a love for languages, literature and fine arts. After studying Literature and American Civilization, she decided to work abroad as a French Assistant – first in London, then in Mexico City. From these experiences, she developed a passion for teaching, and decided to make it into a career. In 2016 she returned to France to earn a master degree in Education and French as a Foreign Language. Following her studies, she worked as a full-time Teacher at the French Alliance of Mexicali, Mexico, then at the French Institute of the North Shore in Winnetka, IL. In class, Adeline loves to incorporate authentic documents from « la francophonie » (French speaking countries) such as songs, news articles, paintings etc.

Adeline is excited to be part of the Roycemore family where she can share, learn and create activities with the staff and students of the school. As a local resident, Adeline is happy to contribute to the community, and cultivate personal relationships within the intimate setting which Roycemore offers.

At Roycemore, students take French classes starting in pre-kindergarten all the way through senior year. There are additional language courses offered for students in the Middle School and Upper School. In addition, AP options are available for students to further advance their language skills.
