Rachel Chartrand James

Bonjour! I am teaching French I and connections French this year. I came to teach at Beechwood when it opened in 2019 and love being a part of the Beechwood family! I earned my bachelor’s degree in French and secondary education from Converse College, and I earned a master’s degree in education, administration, and supervision from the University of Phoenix. I have been teaching since 1998 and previously taught at the high school and college levels and in the district’s French immersion program. I love sharing the French language with students. When not at Beechwood, I enjoy spending time with my husband, two daughters, and three dogs. We love to go to the beach and the lake.
