Mrs. Lauri French

     My name is Lauri French. I am delighted to be working as your child’s ESL teacher. I will be supporting your child throughout the year by collaborating with their mainstream teacher, and helping to improve your child’s reading, writing, and listening skills. 


       I have worked in District 308 for over 10 years. .  I truly love what I do and I can't wait to get into the classroom to challenge students and get them excited about learning. I have taught grades K- 9th grade. I have also taught French/Spanish in the Children's Program at Waubonsee Community College after school program and summer camps.


     My mother tongue is Spanish and I am fluent in Spanish and can easily understand and speak some French as I lived in Paris, France prior to becoming a teacher. I enjoy the opportunity to enhance my students’ language skills by applying my extensive experience from other countries. 


If you ever have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at 630-636-3347 or you can email me at
