Teacher Feature: Madame Tyner

  • How does it feel to be out of ReTYNERment? 
  • It has been a joy and a pleasure to be back in the classroom teaching French! I have missed my students during ReTYNERment and am thankful for this opportunity. The only part I dread is that obnoxious alarm clock ringing way too early in the morning. I love sharing my passion for France and all things French!

  • What is your favorite word to say out loud?
  • I love saying “quelquefois” (sometimes) and “quatre vingt quatre” (eighty-four).


  • Where is your happy place?
  • My happy place is Hollywood Beach, Florida when I am there with my husband, children and grandchildren. 

  • How many times have you visited France?
  • I actually lived in Brittany, France as a foreign exchange student in high school! I have returned 3 times since then with former DCHS French students while on European tours, and I have gone twice with my husband. 

  • If you had to smell like one kind of food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
  • French onion soup! I have fond memories of sitting in Paris cafes eating delicious French onion soup and I make a pretty good bowl of it myself! It smells so good and warms the body and soul!

  • BONUS: If you were in the witness protection program, what would be your new name and where would you go? 
  • Juliette LaCrepe and I would go to Eze, France: a beautiful medieval hilltop village overlooking the French Riviera and the Mediterranean Sea.
