Meet Our Woodlands French Teacher - Nancy Arena

My name is Nancy and I am a French Teacher at Woodlands. I will give children through play the choice and opportunities to learn a French language and also a French culture. I believe learning is happening all the time, in a physical, social, emotional and cognitive way. My goal in my program is for the children to learn in a fun, safe, respectful, and positive environment but also to guide and support the children into the next stage of their development with confidence and excitement.
Learning a new language in Early Childhood education has several benefits including Boost problem solving, improving memory, concentration and ability to multitask. I will plan my program through activities and topics on the children's interest. An adult is like a child, we continue to learn with confidence and excitement.
