A little about me

United States of America & Togo Friendship Table Flag

         My name is Hélène Ananou and I’m kindergarten teacher this year. This will be my nineth (9th) year teaching at LNFI. I've previously taught World Culture, second grade for two (2) years, Physical Education and first grade for four (4) years. I’m very 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 of Arts in Teaching at Hamline University. I have a daughter, Mariella who graduated from LNFI in 2020 and is in 7th grade now, continuing the French program at Ramsey middle school.

In my free time I like to read, cook, sing, dance, walk and watch superheroes shows and comedies with my family.

 I'm very happy to be your child's teacher this year. I know that due to COVID-19, things may still look different and challenges might come our way, but together, as a family and community we can make it work.
