Hugues Sonna Toukem

French Immersion

I was born in Cameroon, where I spent my childhood before moving to Germany. I pursued my studies there and received an electrical engineering degree before moving to Canada. After working as an engineer for a little while, I decided to go back to school to become a teacher, which I was really passionate about.

I graduated from campus Saint Jean in 2018 with my Bachelor of Education, majoring in mathematics and minoring in sciences. I have a passion for languages and speak 5 of them. French is my favorite one. I enjoy teaching French immersion students at St Mary’s and McCoy high School. My goal is to make my classes engaging and relevant to what students will need to move forward in their academic careers! I am a huge soccer fan and I really look forward to coaching students within the school district.
