Chris Moore De Ville, French
Office: RR 109
When I began college, my career plans were simple: "Anything but teaching." Serving as a graduate teaching assistant, first at Mississippi State University (M.A.) and then at Rice University (Ph.D.) led me to discover a joy in and talent for teaching.
Over the years I have taught all age levels (from pre-school to college) in many different subjects, including Sunday School, English, ESL, and Teaching Methods for Foreign Languages. I have taught in the public schools as a substitute elementary teacher and as a high school teacher.
French remains one of my favorite subjects. Not only because of the beauty of the language, but also because of the glimpses it gives students of different cultures all around the globe.
