| Mrs. Tessier was born and raised in Paris, France. She earned her bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Antony University and her master's degree in Education at Paris V University.
After teaching various elementary grades in France, Mrs. Tessier and her family moved to the United States. She spent her first ten years in Annapolis, Maryland as a stay at home mom teaching her two young children both French and English.
In 2009, the family had the opportunity to move to Henderson, Nevada. She loves teaching her native language and is excited to offer new French classes at UNLV in the Continuing Education department.
When she's not sharing her knowledge on the French language and culture with the Las Vegas community, Mrs. Tessier likes to spend time with her family and friends. She also enjoys cooking gourmet meals and hiking in the our beautiful national parks.
