Middle and High School French
Summer Osborn has been a French fanatic from the moment she learned to say, "Bonjour!" After studying in France and earning a degree in foreign language education, she taught in public high schools for five years before becoming a stay at home mom. When she found herself homeschooling her daughter, she realized she wanted to connect with homeschooling families and offer them a chance to learn a language in a way that fit their needs. She has been teaching homeschool groups for eleven years, and launched Global Goose Languages in 2018.

Tiffany Becker is a homeschooling mom of four who has taught Spanish for 11 years and is raising her children to be bilingual using the OPOL approach. She teaches mostly Elementary and Middle School classes, but often offers other sections such as groups for adults, Parent & Child, and informal classes for teens. She loves watching the language click with her students while having fun along the way.
Ming-Hsi is a native Mandarin speaker from Taiwan. She has been teaching school- aged children Mandarin every week for several years. She has worked with heritage learners as well as homeschool co-ops. Besides English and Mandarin, she has also learned some basic French and Japanese, and she makes sure her own homeschooled children remain at-least bilingual and value their Chinese heritage and respect other cultures. She enjoys cooking, sewing, reading, hiking, and drawing.
