Isabelle Hall joins French Faculty at UTSA

Meet Isabelle Hall, the newest addition to the French faculty in the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures at UTSA.

Born and raised in the Provence region of France, Hall began to learn English at the age of eight in a home-taught program, then later in the sixth grade followed by German in the eighth grade. After earning her Bachelor’s degree or une License in Langues Etrangeres Appliquees (Applicable Foreign Languages),  she began to tutor English to middle school students and French refugees.  Soon after, a French professor from Brigham Young University offered her a Teaching Assistant position on the condition she completed her B.A. in French there. After that she earned an M.A. in  technology and cinema and Francophone literature and culture.

Shortly after graduating, Hall and her spouse traveled to South Korea where she had the chance to teach English and some French to Korean people of all ages. A study abroad program was organized with her former students in Korea to visit San Antonio, where she fell in love with Texas.

Following the commitment to her children’s developmental years, Hall took the opportunity to teach French courses at Northwest Vista College and has been there for the last 13 years where she helped create an active French club and great relationships with her students. Learning that most of her students transferred to UTSA, Hall set out to do the same.

As Lecturer II, Hall will be teaching FRN 1014, 2013, 2333, and 3023 this Fall semester and looks forward to being part of the Roadrunner family.  She is replacing Anne Lohezic Mutidjo, who has returned to France.

“I am thrilled to bring my passion for teaching, my love for the students, my enthusiasm for French Club and study abroad programs, and my advanced knowledge of French to the campus. The program has been growing for a few years and I desire to contribute to its expansion and its success,” Hall said.
