Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Iris JONGEJAN (Madame Iris)
This will be my fourth year teaching at Clements and proud being a member of the Ranger-family.
I have been passionate about speaking French with my students from the very first day!
I love conversing in French with my students. I cannot wait to get to know my new students and to meet everyone for this 2023-2024 school year. And let's celebrate the 40th anniversary.
Some more about myself; I have lived in Sugar Land since 2014, with my husband and our 2 daughters. We love our neighborhood.
We, all of us, we all love the outdoors. On the weekends, you can find me on the water, on our sailing or on shore, cheering on my daughters with their travel teams at Lakewood Yacht Club or sometimes even out of state. DYIY projects, cooking, baking and reading are also my favourite things to do in my free time.
My career started in a small town in the South of France, on the Côte d'Azur, where I had my first training period (6 months abroad) in Tourism and Hotel Business. Then, after that, I continued in the country for another 'Stage' in the French Alps, where I stayed afterward and was hired to manage a Resort in the Alpes. Then, after 5 years, I returned to the Netherlands, where I then earned my Bachelor of Education with my Major in French at the University of Rotterdam. I was hired right away by the recognized High School of The Hague, where I taught French for 4 years. In 2008, I followed my husband to the States, being a mom of a 4-month-old baby, I worked as a part-time teacher at different private schools. I taught French and Dutch for several years to all ages. Teaching is my passion and, next to that, you could say that I am a real Francophile ;-).
