5th Grade French Teacher
My name is Antoine Oriola, and I was born and raised in France. I was a recent winner (2022) of the U.S. Diversity Visa program and am now a Permanent Resident. I lived in Portland Oregon last year, working in a French Immersion Public Charter School with Kindergartners.
After earning my French architectural license in 2018 and becoming a registered architect, I taught Environmental Design at the undergraduate level in France, where I supervised the development of student undergraduate theses and served on their jury panel. Additionally, I assisted in designing eight mainstage shows for a French puppetry company, providing vocational training and skills development under a nationally-accredited framework. I trained young artists to see creative inspiration in objects and materials and to tell stories using movement and “visual vocabulary". I consider myself an “educator-builder-creative” person. My skills are mostly sharing, hand crafting, drawing, and talking. I’m familiar with 4 of the 5 foreign languages taught at ICSAtlanta. I’m glad to be part of the French teacher team at ICSAtlanta, especially in an IB School, which is very meaningful for me!
