Lauren Peat

French Casa Assistant

Born in Boston, Massachusetts, Mlle. Peat has lived in the United States, England, Canada, and France. She began learning French while living in England, and immediately fell in love with all things francophone. (Not least of all, croissants!). She studied English and French literature at the University of Toronto, and holds a Master of Fine Arts in creative writing from Boston University. A published poet and freelance literary translator, Mlle. Peat most recently taught literacy and creative writing at the high school and undergraduate levels. She has long been inspired by the Montessori philosophy, and is delighted to be sharing her passion for French with the bright young students of Lyonsgate. When not writing or teaching, Mlle. Peat can be found running, whipping up a new recipe, or working on her next big project: learning Spanish!
