Bonjour à tous !
My name is Beth Niemiec, and I am thrilled to be the French teacher at Upper Merion Area Middle School. A native of Langhorne, Pennsylvania, I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in French and Francophone Studies from The Pennsylvania State University. I earned my teaching certificate and Master of the Arts in French from West Chester University.
As far as my experience abroad is concerned, I escaped a brutal State College winter to study in Montpellier, France, where I lived with a host family. Upon graduating from PSU, I spent a school year teaching English at the Lycée Joseph Storck in Guebwiller, France. If my family and friends were not on this side of the Atlantic, I probably would not have come home! However, my experiences abroad greatly influenced my decision to become a French teacher in the United States, and I look forward to sharing my passion for the French language and culture with my students.
When I am not teaching, I enjoy reading, traveling, experimental cooking, and spending time outdoors with my dog (Leonard!). I am dedicated to the fight against cancer. And I love to watch Roger Federer win Grand Slam titles.
