I have a Bachelor of Arts from Lee Universtiy as well as a Bachelor of Arts from the Université d'Avignon.

I am currently working on my Master of Arts in Teaching. 


I was an Au Pair from 2010-2012 with a French family in Le Pontet, France (a suburb of Avignon). I lived a total of 3 and 1/2 years in Avignon with my husband, Alexandre (who is French).

I've been a French tutor at Lee University, taught a language lab for one semester there as well for the intermediate level. 


Amber Thevenet is the high school French teacher at SMMHS. She has been married to her French husband, Alexandre, for nearly 5 years and they have one son, Quentin, who is almost 3 years old. Madame Thevenet lived abroad for three and a half years in Avignon before moving back to the Chattanooga area. She is very passionate about the French language and culture and has been studying French since the 8th grade! She graduated from Lee University with a Bachelor of Arts in French Literature and she also has a Bachelor of Arts in English Language and Literature from the University of Avignon. Currently she is finishing a Master of Arts in Teaching at Lee University and is expected to graduate in December 2015.
