Laurette Nassif completed her PhD in French at CU Boulder. A native speaker and CU alumni, she is a strong proponent of immersion and believes primarily in using the target language and authentic material in the classroom. When not in the classroom, she enjoys listening to podcasts and cooking. Through her mission of preparing the students to acquire the language, Laurette prepares the students to think outside of their communities and become global citizens. She is proud to be part of the ALTEC language faculty and help her students learn about the French language and culture.
Laurette is honored to be the recipient of the Colorado Conference of Foreign Language Teachers (CCFLT) 2021 Teacher of the Year award.
