Born and raised in Vendée near the Atlantic Ocean, Karine studied at the Université de Nantes to become an English teacher and, came to Minnesota to be a teaching assistant for a year. That was nearly 30 years ago...
Karine began teaching at Alliance Française in 1992 and continues to be a key member of our teaching staff today.
Throughout her tenure on our staff, Karine has touched thousands of students' lives, fostering a love of French culture and better understanding of the French language. Karine's dedication to teaching and to Alliance Française is clear in the passion she brings to her classroom each and every day.
We hope that you will join us in honoring Karine with a classroom in our new building in her name!
