Mr. Benjamin Owens

Hello! Bonjour!

My name is Benjamin Owens and I teach French at MacArthur High School in the sunny city of San Antonio. I am an American born and raised, but French has been a passion of mine thanks to my Grandfather who served as a medic in World War II and brought back to my family a love of the French and their culture. I studied French all across the world: in High School, at the University of Chapel Hill in North Carolina, the Sorbonne and the Alliance Française in Paris, and Athabasca, Canada. I lived in a rural town 30 minutes from Paris, France for 8 years with my wife and our three children, two of whom were born there! While living in France, I was the president of the PTA for my kids’ school (the normal French public school), participated in weekly cooking workshops, and taught language classes in the local community center. It was there that I learned the joy of teaching, and once my work there finished, I couldn’t get back to the USA fast enough to get certified as a teacher, start teaching and sharing my love of the French language and culture. I look forward to teaching my students not just the French language, but also sharing the details of daily life that the average tourist would never discover.
