Bonjour! My name is Madame Margaret Bolar Boly. I am a kindergarten teacher at L'Etoile du Nord.
I am, originally, from Stevens Point, WI. It is no lie that I am a product of the Dairy State; my favorite food is ice cream. I completed my BA at the University of WI-Madison. After teaching preschool for four years, my family and I moved to the Twin Cities. I finished a Master's in Education at the University of Minnesota and received two teaching licenses in French and in English as a Second Language. My elementary education license is from Hamline University in Saint Paul.
My French language experience started in junior high school. Then, I went to Concordia Language Villages as a student. This allowed me to practice my French and inspired me to study abroad. As a high school student, I spent one month in Brittany. During my undergraduate studies, I spent a year in Senegal, West Africa. I met my husband during my studies there, and we have been married for 9 years. He speaks eight languages, including French. Our lives are kept very busy by our inquisitive 5 year old daughter, Rosalie. She will be beginning her LNFI school career in kindergarten this fall.
Most of my time away from school is spent with my family. I do like to play word games, drink mocha lattes, and relax once in a great while. :-)
