Storyboard Text

  • Hello everyone! My name is Madeleine Challies. I live on Vancouver Island with my two kids and partner. I am originally from eastern Canada but have lived on the beautiful west coast since 1998.
  • My favourite activities are biking, reading, and lately sitting around the campfire as we isolate at home.
  • I've been teaching French Immersion at the middle school level since 2007. I am passionate about language teaching and finding authentic interactive language learning opportunities through projects.
  • I especially love reading with my students. It can be a challenge to help students develop a love of reading for pleasure in their second (or third! or fourth!) language. I love helping them discover the countless amazing French books through a combination of reading aloud, paired reading, lit circles and independent reading.
  • In recent years, I have had the chance to order French books for our library and help support literacy for our French Immersion program. This opportunity has sparked my interest in becoming a teacher librarian. There is so much to learn and I am eager to begin!
  • I really enjoy collaborating with colleagues and I look forward to working with you all on this next chapter of our learning journey!(side note- I typically wear slightly more formal clothes to work but that was beyond my technical capabilities for my first storyboard. Besides, this does look like my pandemic teaching outfit:)
