Mrs. Lara Owlett


Bonjour! Hello!

Bienvenue à la classe de français!
Welcome to English class!

About Me:
I currently teach French I – IV at Wellsboro Area High School.
I also teach 9th Grade World Literature and 10th Grade American Literature.
I have been teaching at Wellsboro Area SD since 2010.

I studied French at Eastern University (St. Davids, PA) and l’Université Marc Bloch (Strasbourg, France). While at Eastern, I also earned a minor in Spanish. I finished my Masters Degree in Multicultural Education and Teaching English as Second Language in 2013.

In July 2014, the French Embassy granted me the opportunity to study French pedagogy in Besançon, France with French teachers from every corner of the world.  This past summer, I worked as a Program Leader for four weeks in Toulouse, France with CIEE. I learned a lot from collaborating with the French teachers in that program. 

I am a proud and active member of both AATF (American Association of Teachers of French) and NNSTOY-PA (Pennsylvania’s chapter of the National Network of State Teachers of the Year). Membership to the latter was awarded when I was named a 2018 PA Teacher of the Year finalist.

Global Connections in French Class at WHS:
French is the official language of 32 countries. In an attempt to make French more relevant to my students, I choose to incorporate pen-pals (written and video correspondences) in all levels of my curriculum at the high school. 

This year, all French I and II students will be corresponding with students from Dakar, Sénégal. This will be facilitated by an organization called “Global 1 to 1.” For more information, check out their website:

Additionally, all French III and French IV students will have the opportunity to continue our correspondence with Rick Groult’s English students in Normandy, France ( and Roxane Nirenberg’s students in Brussels, Belgium. ( 

Class Information: 
Up-to-date information can be found on the course page within the Sapphire Website. Links to daily agendas, objectives, and homework are posted there.

My students and I use google classroom as a platform, and this information is accessible only to currently enrolled parents and students. 

Availability: I am available via phone M-F 8:45-9:30 am and T, Th, and Fr from 3:00- 3:30. Other arrangements may be possible if made in advance.
