Bienvenue and welcome! I'm Michele Cherie. I'm a French and English teacher, writer, sometimes a homeschooling mama, and always a lifelong learner. Besides having a passion for all things French, I adore intercultural education, reading, and supporting bilingual experiences. If you choose to subscribe to my blog updates, I'll send you a list of my family's favorite French learning resources!

Francophone? Voici un peu au sujet de nous, grâce au blog High Five Family en FranceIls sont américains et parlent français à la maison.

About my family:

My husband and I met in a Master's in Teaching program. He was born in Thailand yet raised in the U.S. (He didn't know any French before I began speaking it to our children!) We've been raising our children in Oregon with some long-term stays in France. I speak French with our children (having learned French in high school, at Westmont College, and by studying abroad in France.) My husband speaks English with our children, though because of our bilingual household, he now understands a fair amount of French too.

It's been fantastic to see our children become proficient bilinguals who understand a decent amount about the world and its cultures. We've also hosted multiple exchange students and one au pair over the past few years and that's been a fantastic cultural journey too!

I hope you'll join me here often. You can follow me on Bloglovin', Instagram, or Facebook. I'm on Pinterest and Twitter occasionally too. Just a reminder: if you subscribe to my blog updates, I'll send you my family's favorite French learning resources! If needed, you can contact me at michele@intentionalmama.comA bientôt!
