Dr. Pulchérie GUENEAU
I am French, raised in different countries as we followed my dad around for his engineering job, in South Korea, Sri Lanka,France and Nigeria. I was distance-learning until 11th grade. That was before internet, so we started the year with a big box of materials and went through it during the school year. We received the feedback from the teacher 3 to 6 weeks after we sent in our assignments. My brothers and I made it through very well, so I am confident that you all will also be successful as we navigate through distance-learning this year with all the powerful tools at our disposal.
As an adult I lived in the UK, Spain, Italy, Venezuela and Norway. My husband is a geologist from Venezuela, and we met while I was a visiting PhD student at MIT and Princeton University. I then worked as a research scientist in Venezuela for 8 years, and switched to teaching to accomodate our family life when we had our 2 sons and my husband's job sent us moving around the globe. We now have settled in Houston since 2010. I worked at Bellaire High School 6 years as an IB teacher before moving to Carnegie last year.
I love science, I love learning new languages -6 to this day-, I love good food and all the Marvel superhero movies. I volunteer with the Buffalo Soldier National Museum to commemorate the sacrifice of our WWI African-American soldiers every year on Veterans Day. Join us : we need volunteers to sing the national anthems of France and the USA at the ceremony!
I am excited to be your teacher this year!
