For the past 21+ years, I have taught English and French to all grades from K-12. In addition to teaching, I have presented keynote addresses, workshops, sessions and have performed sold-out educational concert tours to hundreds of thousands of teachers and students all over the world. I have created materials for my own classroom that have been used by international publishing companies across North America (including Thomson Nelson, Oxford University Press, Pearson Education, Prentice Hall, Ginn, Gage Canada, Educorock Productions and even Denmark’s Forlag Malling Beck). That said, however, I have maintained ownership of all of my creations because I wanted to always be able to share them with as many teachers and learners as possible. This is why I offer these resources to you here at TpT.
Progressive, innovative, cutting-edge. My teaching and all the "Languages 4 All" resources are influenced by a multi-intelligences-approach to scaffolded learning in a fun, inclusive way that makes acquisition seamless.

Some of you may know me as the educational performer "Etienne" (and "DJ DELF"). But, what very few people know is that during my successful touring, performing French and Spanish concerts worldwide, I created what I consider to be my best work ever. It is the collection of these English songs, videos and interactive activities that I share with you today on TpT. Of course, fans of our French and Spanish resources will also be able to access those here as well. May you all keep doing the great work that is literally changing lives every day! God bless you.
