Letter of Introduction

Dear French Students and Parents:

Bonjour!  My name is Meredith Stratton and I am the French teacher here at Field High School.  This is my 24th year as an educator, and French is one of my greatest passions (besides my family).  In my opinion, French is one of the most beautiful and eloquent languages in the world, and I love sharing my enjoyment of the French language and culture with my students.

I began studying French as a freshman when I was a student at Cuyahoga Falls High School.  I still consider myself a student of French, so I have been learning French for over 30 years!  I graduated Suma Cum Laude from the University of Akron in 1995 with a double major in French and Secondary Education.

Over the years, I have had the opportunity to travel to Germany, England, Spain, Quebec, and of course France, so I have a deep understanding of European culture.  Over 130 Field High School students have travelled with me to Paris since 2001, and I took another group to Québec in June of 2018.

I consider it my privilege to have the opportunity to know and teach French at Field High.  While some students may find my expectations a little challenging, please be assured that I want each of my students to succeed at a high level in my class.  Of course, in order to be successful, I need parental support.  I understand that most parents do not speak French, so all I ask is that parents encourage their students to complete their homework assignments and to study diligently.  Students should share what is learned in class…it isn’t necessary for parents to understand everything, but the simple act of explaining the lessons will help students learn the content much more easily.  Assignments will be posted on my Google Classroom page, and I update my grades at least three times a week (usually more).

Please feel free to contact me if you ever have any questions or concerns.  My school e-mail address is: Meredith.Stratton@fieldlocalschools.org.  If you choose to e-mail me or to call and leave a voice-mail, I will make every effort to communicate with you within 24 hours.  Also, please know that I would be delighted to meet you during parent-teacher conferences in November.

Again, I am very excited to begin a great adventure in learning with my French students.  I truly want to help each student learn to the best of his/her ability, so if he/she ever seems to be struggling, please contact me.  I will always find time to help my students succeed! 

Best wishes for a successful and enjoyable school year,

Meredith L. Stratton
