Jacob LaVoie


Jacob has been hired as a World Language Teacher for French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian and Arabic classes. He has lived in France and Germany and spent considerable time in Latin America as child and young adult. He graduated from the University of North Texas in 2016 with a BA in German with a minor in French and Arabic.

Jacob has an extreme passion for foreign languages and is constantly learning new ones. Because of this, he understands and empathizes with his students as he knows it is not always easy to learn a new language. When not working or learning a new language, Jacob enjoys reading and collecting books, planning a trip or playing classical guitar.

Whacky fact: Jacob has gotten stuck in the desert in the Middle East twice in two different countries with his wife.
