Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Iris JONGEJAN (Madame Iris)
This will be my third year teaching at Clements and being an official member of the Ranger-family.
I am extremely excited about starting a new school year . I have been passionate about speaking French with my students from the very first day!
I love grammar and conversing in French. I cannot wait to get to know my new students and to meet everyone for this 2022-2023 school year.
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 vessel and on the field hockey fields or on shore, cheering on my daughters with their travel teams at LYC or sometimes even out of state. 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 ;-).
