Mr. Christophe Barquissau

Christophe is originally from Paris, France. He came to the US to attend graduate school and take courses in the linguistic and psychology department at the University of Arizona. Christophe wanted to discover new aspects of life and culture and to expand his world of knowledge. Once graduated, he became an instructor with the ability to teach Psychology and French at Universities and Junior Colleges as well as AP French language and literature for public and private High Schools. During his second year as a teacher he became a reader for the Advance Placement Examination for the College Board, and shortly after a consultant for the United States. Christophe believes that education in Second Language Acquisition Theory has fostered his ability to develop innovative curriculums that engage students and create the desire and the ability to learn. During his teaching, he always try to set very rigorous standards and strive to constantly ignite intellectual fire and develop critical thinking. He moved to California August 2009 and so far, his experience in Los Altos High School, has been the best of his entire career! This includes everything from the environment, to the staff, to the students. If there is a heaven for teachers Christophe thinks he has found it! His motto: “Work Hard – Play Hard”Chrioriginally from Paris, France> He came to the US to attend graduate school and take courses in the linguistic and psychology department at the University of Arizona.
