Dr. Sandra K. Simmons


I joined the Highland Park High School faculty in 2016 where I teach all levels of French, from novice to advanced, and sponsor the French Club, La Société Honoraire de Français, and Le Concours du Texas. I have been speaking French since I was a sophomore in high school, later spent 11 years living in France, and participate now in many professional forums, notably the American Association of Teachers of French, ACTFL, and Women in French. In addition to the TEKS and ACTFL standards, my curriculum includes STEAM challenges, which provide French students the opportunity to work on real-world problems from a francophone perspective. This year, French 5 students will explore ways to personalize their involvement in francophone communities through research-based projects.
