About


Hello, everyone! 

My name is Erin Casteel, and I’m Elaine Lepine.


Bonjour à tous,

Nous sommes Erin Casteel et Elaine Lépine.

Elaine and Erin
Elaine and Erin

We are full time elementary school teachers. Erin teaches art and Elaine teaches French immersion kindergartners. We created The Adventures of Pifou and Michael as a fun way for students and language learners of all ages to work on French vocabulary. We are very excited about the book and pleased with the result. 


Nous sommes toutes les deux enseignantes dans une école primaire américaine. Erin enseigne l'art et Elaine enseigne en maternelle , immersion française. Nous avons créé "Les aventures de Pifou et Michael" pour permettre aux élèves et personnes désirant apprendre l'anglais ou le français de le faire façon ludique. Nous sommes ravies des résultats obtenus grâce à l'utilisation de notre livre.
 

The book!
The book!

We self published the book with our own time and money and love sharing it! Our next step is to create additional products and resources to go with the book and help inspire learning and play! We need help getting these additions off the ground! We want to share this fully bilingual project with as many teachers, students, and families as possible.

This project is very dear to us and we would like to make many expansive resources and fun bonuses for teachers and families to get the most out of our work! Our first goal will be a simple one, coloring sheets and worksheets to supplement the book! 


 Nous avons créé et  financé nous même l'auto-publication de ce livre pendant notre temps libre et adorons le partager avec vous. La prochaine étape est de créer d'autres ressources s'attachant au livre pour promouvoir l'apprentissage d'une langue de façon ludique. Nous avons besoin de votre aide pour réaliser notre projet. Nous souhaitons partager notre projet totalement bilingue avec autant d'enseignants, élèves et familles que possible.

Ce projet nous tient vraiment à cœur et nous souhaiterions le voir grandir en créant de nouvelles ressources pédagogiques ainsi que des bonus amusants destinés aux utilisateurs afin de profiter un maximum du livre. Le premier bonus sera une feuille de coloriage et/ ou une feuille d'exercices en complément du livre.

Risks and challenges

We are aiming small with this, our first kickstarter, but there are surely things we have missed or will underestimate. We are aiming for perks and shipments to be completed before Christmas, but with the unreliability of shipping, production, and our professional lives we are working to create buffers so our backers will not see these delays. We do not anticipate huge amounts of backers, but just in case the physical perk tiers are all limited to achievable numbers. But we feel like this would be a good problem to have.
