"Bonjour! Je m'appelle Mme. Brackin-Duncan!
I am the French II Teacher at Garrett Academy! I'm only here during First Block, then I travel to Clark Academy in the afternoon. My goal is to teach your children based on the five competencies of Modern and Classical Languages: Cultures, Connections, Comparisons, Communities, and Communication.
French II is offered as a preliminary language course that stresses the use of grammar, vocabulary, and sentence structure. Students will learn how to write in full sentences, read, comprehend, and speak the target language on a Novice-Intermediate Level.
I have previously taught French at Burke Middle High School for six years. I studied in France when I was sixteen, seventeen, and in college at l'Universite d'Angers in Angers, France. I graduated from Appalachian State University in 2000 with a Bachelor of Science in French and Education, with a minor in Psychology. I am currently working on my Masters of Educational Administration at the University of South Carolina- The Graduate School. My hobbies include writing, reading, playing with my three-year-old daughter, kickball, singing, and learning new things.
I look forward to teaching your child!
