My name is André Sockmack, a native from Cameroon, a French speaking country in Central Africa. I have been teaching children, as well as adults, for more than 25 years. I have been teaching in the U.S. for 18 years and at Académie Lafayette for 11 years. I got my bachelor’s degree from the University of Yaoundé and a master’s degree in the art of teaching from Webster University.

I am a teacher, an author, and a writer of the series called La Pratique de l’Immersion en Français “Practical French Immersion.” I have a great family with three children. I love reading, listening to classical music, and being around happy people.

“I believe that Teaching is a Call from the above. I have been inspired to become an inspiring person.”

My name is Sheila Rowan, and I am honored to be a part of the Académie Lafayette community. This year is my 20th year of teaching and my 5th year here at AL. I love teaching 4th grade English and Communication Arts. I graduated from Rockhurst University with a BA and a Master’s in Education.

I have two beautiful daughters, Siobhan (18) and Alana (16). I lived in Ireland for almost two years, and my girls and I travel as much as we can. I love movies, reading, games (especially Scrabble!), music, and going to see the Royals play. My philosophy of teaching revolves around an eloquent quote that I just stumbled across after teaching a nonfiction unit on inventors. Ben Franklin once said… “Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.”

I’ve spent my career working with children with speech, language, feeding, and learning challenges in home, clinic, school, and hospital settings. I’ve worked at AL since 2017. I live in Waldo with my husband, two French-speaking kids, dog, and two cats.
