How French can be a career field

Maria Reynolds, a French-speaker from Texas, spoke at French Club on Tuesday, 5 February 2013.  She shared with about 15 students how she left college after 2 1/2 years, joined the Navy and trained as a French linguist in Monterey, California.  Using her French in such exotic places as Spain and Guantanamo Bay, Maria talked about a variety of duties such as interpreting for Algerian prisoners to listening for intelligence clues over the radio.

Maria married a Canadian who uses his French every day in Norfolk, Virginia where he works for NATO.

Before she spoke, French Club participants sampled 3 Kings Cake and the one who had the ‘fève/ bean’ or ‘figurine’ / (Mme Cochrane substituted a lego piece!) was Le Roi.

About Maria

I belong to Christ. With Jesus as my creator, sustainer, redeemer, lord and brother, I find joy and satisfaction in my roles of wife, mom, friend, grandmother, teacher and feeder of 2 felines. I also love to read, hike, speak French, share ideas, cook and write!
