French 1

Madame Tomalty

About me:

I fell in love with French while living with a host family in the French Alps. I also lived in Morocco, where French is spoken.  I have a bachelor’s degree in French Studies from the University of Minnesota and a masters from the U of MN in Teaching French and English as a Second Language (ESL).  

Outside of the classroom I enjoy spending time with my husband, speaking French, rock climbing, reading, trail running, and traveling.

I’m really looking forward to teaching French 1!
