An interview with Mrs Clark, French Teacher

1. Where did you work before coming to Solefield?
Prior to joining Solefield I took time out to raise a family and worked from home.  Before that, I taught at a girls' School in North London where I was Head of Modern Languages. 

2. How different is Solefield to where you last taught? 
The classes were bigger and teaching girls requires a different approach to teaching boys. 

3. What do you like to do in your spare time?  
I run with my dog, Zuki, a Hungarian Vizsla, and my family (see the picture of Zuki below).  My husband and I are also learning to Lindy Hop, which has been quite challenging under lockdown.

4. Tell us something unique about you.
I taught English in Matsumoto, Japan, for a year after graduating. 

5. What inspired you to become a French teacher?
I have always loved languages and like to pass this on to others. 

6. What is your favourite food and why?
Vegetarian stuffed peppers and dark chocolate.
