Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Amelia Groza, and I’ve been teaching French for the past 14 years. I earned my Bachelor’s degree in French and English, and I have a Master's degree in Education and a Doctor's degree in Philology. I am originally from Romania, but have lived in the US since 2005. This is my first-year teaching French at South Aiken High School. In the past, I taught at Silver Bluff High School, Aiken SC and Gilbert High School, Gilbert SC.
I have always dreamed of being a teacher. When I was little, I remember that my parents would have to clean the doors quite often because I was practicing my teaching skills by writing on them as you would write on a board. English was the first world language I learned, starting in second grade. French was the second, starting in fourth grade. I developed a real passion for the French language and culture while in high school. I learned French in an immersion program. I’ve come to “dream, laugh and live” in French, and love it!
I also like to travel, read, take photos, do crafts and last, but not least, spend time with my little family. My toddler keeps my husband and I busy while at home, and it is a true joy to be around him.
