Jessie Angel is the immediate past President of Alliance Française de Nashville. After completing a BS in Psychology, Jessie earned a TESOL Certificate for ELT (English Language Teaching) and currently works in an Academic Library that serves many of Nashville’s English Language Learners. Jessie’s passion for the French language and culture can be traced back to her grandfather, who was born in Paris. She has enjoyed extended vacations in France, Switzerland, and Canada, where some French proficiency is certainly useful, and she asserts that learning a foreign language increases knowledge of one’s native tongue. She is happy to discuss French art, backpacking, and eating well in France (even as a vegetarian!). Jessie can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
