A little about me



         My name is Hélène Ananou and I’m first grade teacher this year. This will be my seventh year teaching at LNFI. I've taught World Culture, second grade for two years, Phy. ed. and my third year in first grade. I’m so excited for this educational journey with your child and also to see them develop and grow over the course of the year! 


         I’m originally from Togo, a French country in West Africa. I graduated with a French Bachelor's degree in Language Arts, and a Master's in Linguistics. I have a K-6 Elementary teaching license and graduated with a Master in Arts of Teaching at Hamline University. I previously taught at Alliance Française of Minneapolis and Berlitz Corporation in Edina. I have a daughter, Mariella who is in fifth grade at the Upper Campus this year.

In my free time I like to read, cook, study the Bible, watch superheroes shows and spend time with my family.

 I'm very happy to be your child's teacher this year.
