Bonjour! My name is Carol Susman. I was born in Michigan, and grew up in Indianapolis, Indiana. In 1991, I moved to Charleston, West Virginia where I now live with my husband, Tom.
I fell in love with the French language in middle school, and eventually earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in French from Indiana University. A summer study program in Dijon and, later, a yearlong stay with a French family in Paris as an “au pair,” deepened my appreciation for the French language, culture, and history. After working for a time in the insurance industry, I was asked to teach French classes at my sons’ Montessori school. I decided to earn my Master’s of Arts in Teaching from Marshall University, and have taught students from preschool through college. I am currently teaching French at West Virginia State University.
When not teaching, I enjoy playing tennis, reading, and walking dogs at the local animal shelter. I look forward to sharing the joy of the French language with all of you!
