Meet the Teacher

                            Madame Kim Davis







Bonjour! Je m'appelle Madame Davis. I am very excited to be starting my ninth year teaching French at Tuscaloosa County High.  I have studied French language and culture for over twenty years.  My particular interests include phonology, seventeenth-century literature, Francophone Louisiana, and of course, Second Language Acquisition.  I sponsor a bi-annual trip to France with the History department. You can find information on our trips by clicking here.  I also enjoy teaching Mythology where I work with students on their reading and writing skills, even though I will not be teaching it due to the popularity of my French classes. Before becoming a teacher, I spent almost five years with the Blount Undergraduate Initiative at UA training college freshman in the art of writing.  I also worked closely with professors in the Department of Religious Studies at UA, and I maintain those professional relationships to help me design academic experiences. I taught and performed Irish dance with the Alabama Academy of Irish Dance in Birmingham and Tuscaloosa. In my spare time, I take ballet at Ballet Arts and Fitness. I also enjoy gardening, sewing 18th century clothing, cooking, travelling, and spending time with my four legged friends, Ziggy, Alex, and Bailey.
