Germain Badang

Academic Biography:
I chose to be a teacher because I believe it is the best place to make a difference for a better world. I am a double major of Spanish Linguistics and dialectology, and Social studies and global education. I have always taught from very early years. I started teaching in Spain. I new that it is what I wanted to do. Teaching is my passion.

What I like in Monmouth C are the resources available to teach and the quality of other teachers. All are very accessible and friendly. You really feel part of a warm and welcoming familly. It is therefore easier to transmit that spirit to our students
