Mme Susan Owens currently teaches grade 6 Late French Immersion at École Boundary Elementary where she is also Vice-Principal. She has previously taught French Immersion Kindergarten and Grade 7, as well as Grades 8-12 Immersion and Core French. She is a trained teacher-librarian and has worked at both the elementary and secondary levels in that capacity. She has two adult children who both enrolled in Late Immersion. Her daughter continued through high school and post-secondary, graduating from SFU’s French Immersion cohort last fall.

Susan is passionate about the effectiveness of the interdisciplinary approach of teaching content in French and thereby acquiring literacy in both the content and the language. Having experience on both the teacher and the parent sides of the equation, she will give suggestions to parents on how they can best support their children in this enriching program.
