French For Fun - Our Staff

Madame Catherine Jolivet, a native of France, is the owner and director of the International Enrichment Center, Inc. dba French For Fun, a well-regarded program which began more than 30 years ago at Monte Gardens Elementary school in Concord, where her two older sons attended the Back to Basics program. With Robert, her younger son, Catherine discovered Montessori education and attended St Mary's College in Moraga, CA to learn more about Maria Montessori's philosophy and how her principles could be implemented and adopted at French For Fun. She holds a credential in languages and world history at the secondary level. She participated in many institutes focusing on the teaching of languages at the elementary level. She is a member of ACTFL, the largest foreign language association in the U.S., as well as the National Association for Education of Young Children. Catherine has conducted workshops nationwide for Fles* teachers. She is recognized as one of the most experienced FLES* (Foreign Language at the Elementary School) teachers in the United States.

Recently, Madame Jolivet attended DVC to puruse her education in early childhood education administration in anticipation of having French For Fun's morning program licensed by the Dept. of Social Services of California.

More former students are bringing their own children to Madame Jolivet and that is of course her most meaningful recognition!
