LentTerm 2013 workset
Ms Julie Hogg
I spent several years in France working in a variety of jobs including Jeune Fille Aupair, Administrator for a holiday home company and Assistant Co-ordinator of a touring theatre group, writing and performing plays around France for students studying English as a foreign language. After returning to full time education and completing a French BA Hons degree I did a PGCE and taught MFL in the Home counties for 11 years before joining Sackville School.
Why I enjoy my subject
I enjoy MFL because it is both structured and creative.
Why I enjoy Sackville
The sense of community.
My favourite lesson
Above all, I enjoy working on tenses: present, perfect, imperfect, future, conditional, pluperfect… Teaching students to recognise structure and patterns in language can be very satisfying.
I am a year 8 tutor attached to a School house. I also run a French GCSE “extra help” Club on Monday and Tuesday and a Spanish Club on Friday.
I enjoy travelling and experiencing other cultures and have enjoyed overland trips across Asia, Europe, North Africa and North, Central and South America often staying with native families (and tribes!) along the way.
