Have you ever met a Francophile? Someone enamored of all things French? Well, chances are they'd be interested in this: a French immersion school in Lansing that allows participants to explore the language and culture of France.

Gaëlle Cassin-Ross is the founder of the French immersion school Aux Petits Soins in Lansing, but she never had plans to become a teacher. She actually moved from Paris for a research position in molecular biology at Michigan State University.
