Bette Shreiber was my first French teacher. I had her until she retired mid-way through my 8th grade year. She was very knowledgeable, charismatic, and engaging. We did a variety of activities in her class ranging from singing La Marseillaise to bringing in French foods to Bingo and Jeopardy for our tests. Her strategies were very effective and I was sad to see her go.
Too bad she retired - one of the best French teachers ever.
