Dr. Rochelle Compaore


I have been an enthusiastic language teacher since 2004, after I received my BA in French Education from Oklahoma Baptist University. For one year after graduation, I lived and taught English in France in two elementary schools, then returned to the US to teach all levels of French at a high school in Tulsa, Oklahoma where I stayed for three years. In 2008, I left high-school teaching to attend graduate school at the University of Missouri, and I obtained my MA in French with an emphasis in language teaching in 2010, after which I continued on to my doctoral degree. During my dissertation work, I returned to France where I lived and worked for three years in two Parisian universities. I completed my dissertation, and received my PhD in French Literature in May 2016 from MU. The topic of my dissertation was: Representations of Marie-Antoinette in 19th-century French Literature and History. I am thrilled to now be a part of the Department of Modern Languages, Anthropology & Geography at Southeast!
