Eleanor C. Moore, French Faculty Member Since 1999
Being able to help students see the fabric of cultures through the lens of language allows all of our department members to develop and strengthen the passion we have for our respective languages and cultures. With exchanges and study-abroad programs, both students and teachers benefit by broadening their worlds. Students can pursue many directions in their study and can put their talents to use in the world beyond. Helping them achieve that ability is the driving force behind my passion for teaching at EHS.

Yesterday was the day we had all been waiting for. Each of us ventured into the home of a St. Peter's student to spend the night and become truly immersed in authentic Teso culture. By the dim lamp light, we feasted on ugali, rice, chicken, chapattis, and nuts. I had an experience of a lifetime. The hospitality I received will be hard to find anywhere else. Even though they did not have as much as us, they gave the best they could offer, and that meant the world.

“Imagine that you were living a happy life with only three senses; then something happened and these senses were doubled. That is what it was like to experience the Diamond Acre Expedition. Rafting the Salmon River, sleeping out under the stars, playing beach volleyball, pushing your legs just one step further under a heavy backpack, all those things set the stage. Then, faced with the climax of the trip, you summit the Grand Teton. That was truly the prize at the end of the tunnel. Every sense you never knew existed comes alive and your life shines like never before.”
