My name is Kate Benoit, and I live in Annapolis, Maryland. I just finished up my 7th year of teaching for Anne Arundel County Public Schools. I have been teaching French for AACPS since graduating college, and I really love it. My first year, I was an itinerant teacher, and I taught at five different middle schools. After one year of that, I was lucky enough to land a full time job at Old Mill Middle North, where I have been ever since. OMMN is an IB-MYP school, so all our students take high school level language classes starting in 6th grade. It's challenging, but a lot of fun!
This summer is a busy one for me. Today I started the process of rewriting the French 2 curriculum for the county, which I'll be working on until July. I also have a few trips planned, though, so it won't all be work :)
My favorite ice cream is cookies n' cream. The movie that I've seen probably about a hundred times is "White Christmas".
I'm looking forward to working with everyone!
