Karen Girondel

Karen Girondel has been teaching French her entire adult life. After 38 years with teenagers in the Lexington Public Schools, she has gone on to share her love of French language and culture among former teenagers, aka adults, through Lexington Community Education where it’s ok to make mistakes as long as we are communicating in the language of Tintin, Catherine Deneuve and Molière. Now that she is living in Portland, Maine, she is thrilled to be able to continue orchestrating conversation via Zoom.
