Welcome! My name is Frenchette Guient. I'm an original Texan with strong ties and upbringing in New Orleans, LA. I attended O. Perry Walker High School in Algiers, a New Orleans subdivision. I participated in sports and lettered in volleyball, basketball, and track; I also played tennis and softball. I come from a family of teachers; my father retired from Ball High School in Galveston, TX where he taught first radio and t.v. repair, then with the advancement of technology, computer building and repair. Two of his siblings were teachers, as well as his sisters husband. My mother volunteered and/or substituted. Two of my four sisters are educators, one is an Assistant Principal in Clear Creek ISD, and the other is a Special Education teacher in Dickenson ISD, both in Texas. I also have/had numerous other relatives in the teaching field, I guess you can say its in my blood.
As a SAILS Special Education teacher, my ultimate goal is to see my students become productive, independent, contributing citizens. I encourage my students to work hard to accomplish their dreams. With this belief, they know they can accomplish anything they set their hearts to. I instill in them the belief that they can be anything they want to be and do what ever their hearts desire.
I have been a Texas certified teacher for twelve years, but have participated in the Galveston ISD, Houston ISD, and Fort Bend ISD for over 25 years via, substituting and volunteering. I have been a Resource ELA teacher at Lake Olympia Middle School for 4 years and am currently serving as a SAILS teacher (third year). I received my teaching degree from Texas Southern University in Houston, Tx. Although my original major was not in teaching, I have grown to love the field. I am certified in the areas of Special Education, Physical Education, Health, and ESL. I have been blessed to have had, and have, some of the best students in Fort Bend, as well as work with the best educators in the Houston area. I completed my student-teaching studies at Ridgegate Elementary and Christa McAuliffe Middle Schools. I am a former Girl's athletics coach at Christa McAuliffe and Lake Olympia Middle School, and was the sponsor/founder of an all girls group (L.Y.T.E.- Leading Young Ladies Through Etiquett) during my six years at Christa McAuliffe.
