Welcome to the New site of AATF of North Texas!
The American Association of Teachers of French was founded in 1927 to support the work of French teachers at all levels from elementary school to graduate schools and provide resources to promote and sustain the study of French. With nearly 10,000 members and 76 chapters across the US, AATF is the largest national association of French teachers in the world.
The North Texas chapter serves teachers in more than 20 counties including: Archer, Baylor, Bosque, Bowie, Callahan, Camp, Cass, Clay, Collin, Comanche, Cooke, Dallas, Delta, Denton, Eastland, Ellis, Erath, Fannin, Franklin, Grayson, Gregg, Hamilton, Harrison, Henderson, Hill, Hood, Hopkins, Hunt, Jack, Johnson, Kaufman, Lamar, Moarion, Montague, Morris, Navarro, Upshur, Palo Pinto, Panola, Parker, Rains,Red River, Rockwall, Rusk, Shackleford, Stephens, Somervell, Smith, Tarrant, Throckmorton, Titus, Van Zandt, Wichita, Wilbarger, Wise, Wood and Young. Each year, AATF of North Texas organizes events that promote the study of French and give students unique opportunities to demonstrate their creativity, proficiency, and passion for French and Francophone cultures with peers across the region. For example, Le festival francophone replaces Fête française and invites all students of French (middle school, high school, and university) to a friendly and fun competition without tests where they can demonstrate how talented they are. Students can compete in numerous cultural events, receive prizes, and learn about opportunities related to their study of French.
Teachers who would like to enrich their students' experience of learning French are encouraged to apply for cultural grants.
AATF of North Texas hosts two professional development meetings each school year.
We invite all French teachers in the North Texas area to join our network of dynamic educators and take advantage of our resources and events! While our new site is under construction, please email Committee@AATFNorthTexas.org for more information.
