“I am Diana Roucoux and this is my second year serving as FASSV PTA President this year. I have three children, Ella (5th Grade), Alex, (2nd Grade) and James who is 18 months old. My husband and I met as students at Berkeley while he was studying abroad from France. We settled in San Jose more then 10 years ago now and this is our seventh year with FASSV. We love the small, close community feeling here.
I look forward to working with the FASSV parent community, teachers and administration to make it another great school year filled with fun activities that will create lasting memories for our children.”
“I am Guillaume Duteil and am serving as the PTA Vice President this year. I am also the lucky father of Valentine, in 2nd Grade, and Anaïs, in Pre-K. We moved from France to the Bay Area in February 2016 and have been at FASSV ever since.
Outside of FASSV, I am a Sales Operations Manager at Google and a huge fan of LEGO and French bandes dessinées.
I’m really looking forward to an exciting year in the FASSV community!”
”My name is Noori Khadem-Devanneaux and I am proud to be your new PTA Secretary! I am a born and raised Californian and have lived in the Bay Area my whole life, specifically in Los Altos since the 2nd grade. I am now raising my daughter Sofia with my husband Thomas, in my hometown; what an amazing experience!
This is our second school year at FASSV. Sofia is now in 1st grade. My educational background is in Healthcare and I teach and direct a pharmacy program at a community college. When I am not in the classroom, you will find me at the local community hospital pharmacy, where I do pharmacy operations.
I don’t speak much French, but I do speak conversational Farsi. I love to talk, to be heard, and to hear from you, so don’t hesitate to contact me. You can find me at the park just behind FASSV most days after school with Sofia. Come and visit me!”
“I am Naouel BOUABID and this is my first year serving as the PTA Treasurer. I have two children. My son Ismael is in the First Grade and my daughter Maya is in Pre-K. We have been living in Bay Area for one year and we have joined FASSV since August 2017.
Before coming to US, I worked in consulting firms specializing in the nonprofit sector.
I am excited to join the PTA as Treasurer and I look forward to helping the team.”
“My name is Solange Emsallem. I grew up in the French Alps where I studied music and education. I’ve lived in the US for eleven years, teaching at FASSV for eleven years after spending one year in San Diego. I’m currently teaching 2nd grade and music in K to 5th. I am very happy to represent the teachers on the PTA board. My two children, one is attending FASSV in 4th and the other is in 6th grade. In my free time, I am also a bassist with the Redwood Symphony and enjoy nature, yoga and karate.”
