Madame Feig / French Teacher:
Madame Feig brings 17th years of experience teaching French and English as a Second Language (ELL). She is a dual citizen of both the US and France. She has lived and worked in the Netherlands, Belgium and France and has taught in public schools in Massachusetts, Indiana and Ohio. In addition, she has raised two bilingual kids – one currently works for the French Government. When not teaching, she enjoys spending time with her family and her 4-legged children, Fuego and Orkhaan (Belgian Shepherds). Throughout the course of the year, she hopes to share her enthusiasm and love for the French language and culture with her students. Ultimately, her goal is that her students will be able to communicate effectively in French and to continue to build upon their existing knowledge.
Señorita Ciccone / Spanish Teacher:
Hola! I’m Danielle Ciccone, a new Spanish teacher and former student here in Burlington! I graduated from BHS in 2009, and went on to major in Spanish and minor in Secondary Education at Framingham State University. I got my first taste of Spain in high school when I went on a school trip with Mrs. Dacey and Ms. Abbott, and after I graduated from college I decided to move there. I spent four years living in the small city of Murcia, where I taught English. I traveled through Spain and to many other countries in Europe, before moving to the Canary Islands where I worked as a wedding photographer for a year. Photography remains a big hobby of mine, and even though I’m back home now I still travel often. I worked as a permanent substitute at BHS last year, and am excited to have my own classroom now! My goal for this school year is to share my love of the Spanish language and culture with my students, and inspire them to want to learn Spanish and explore the Spanish-speaking world.
Señora Sweeney / Spanish Teacher:
Hola! My name is Señora Sweeney and I am thrilled to be back at BHS after a few years away! I have been teaching for 13 years altogether, and absolutely love teaching the Spanish language. My goal for this year is to keep spreading the love of the Spanish language and culture to all of my students — there is so much about to appreciate and enjoy! When I am not teaching, I can be found spending time (especially outdoors) with my husband and my two little boys, working out, and traveling!
