Beth Bacon

Bonjour! The French 1 Curriculum is new for the 2019-2020 school year. We are enthusiastic about this hands-on learning program which has been successfully piloted in Spanish 1 in 2018-19.

Communication: Families, I use Google Classroom to post assignments, resources, and announcements. My calendar shows the assignments. If guardians would like to receive automatic updates from Google Classroom, please send me an email and I will add you to the list. Grades are posted regularly in Skyward.  

About me: The school year of 2019-2020 will be my second year at BHS. I have many links to the high school. I am the spouse of Mr. Bacon, a popular sub in the district. Our two sons graduated from BHS in 2015 and 2017 and this school year we are host parents of an exchange student who's a junior at the high school. 

I teach only French 1... so I am not on campus all days. On the other days, you might find me at the library, a bookstore, or at an elementary school in the region, since my other job is writing books for children. My books are for second graders who don't like to read. They're funny and graphical and have silly titles like The Worst Book Ever and The Book No One Wants To Read. 

I studied French & American Literature at Harvard University. I  also have an Master's degree in Media Ecology (Communication Theory) from NYU and an MFA in Writing for Children from Vermont College of Fine Arts. My favorite French book is Candide by Voltaire and I love the plays of Molière.
