    Mr. Illar


    I have taught French at Somerset since 2003, and at times in the past have been a Spanish teacher as well.  I have led and chaperoned numerous trips to France and Spain, and even took a group of students to Germany one time.   I look forward to the day when such trips will be possible again.  

    After graduating from Somerset as a student, I got a Bachelor of Arts in French and Spanish at the University of Pittsburgh, and stayed a fifth year for a Master of Arts in Teaching.  I enjoy cooking, reading, weightlifting, and running. 

    The restrictions of social distancing for in-person learners and the new world of distance learning for students who will be learning remotely will make this 2020/2021 year unlike any other in my career.  However, with the use of our iPads and Schoology, I hope that it will be the very best learning experience possible for everyone involved.
