"Madame" Emily Podolakepodolak@veronaschools.org
Bonjour! Mrs. Podolak teaches 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grade French at HBW.
Mrs. Podolak has a BA in French from Rutgers University and a Masters in the Art of Teaching from Montclair State University. She spent her junior-year abroad in Tours, France (in the Loire Valley) and after graduation, moved to Reims, France for three years. In this northeastern city of the Champagne region, "Madame" Podolak taught English at both the high school and university levels. She also took graduate classes and lived in Nice, France and even honeymooned in Quebec, Canada!
"Madame" grew up in Verona and attended F.N. Brown, HBW and VHS. So, she is very happy to be back in Verona---there is no town like it! In her free time, she enjoys traveling, hiking, cooking, trying new restaurants and spending time with her friends and family. Her immediate goal for this year is for her students to really try and use their French and to learn about different French-speaking cultures. But, her ultimate goal is to inspire them to think beyond themselves and to take an interest in the world around them! Au revoir!Discovering French Nouveau!
