I taught 8 years in Middle and High School setting in Ohio, where I developed curriculum, planned for, instructed, and assessed all levels of French, including AP. While in Ohio, I also developed training and trained teachers around the state on Integrated Performance Assessment, as part of the Ohio Foreign Language Association's Professional Development Team. I now live in Tennessee with my family. I work for the Chattanooga School of Language, developing materials and instructing a Home School class. I also work at the Chattanooga School for the Liberal Arts, where I teach K, 1st, 5th, and 7th grade! Additionally, I edit, adapt and translate TPRS novels, and develop teacher materials for their publications. Finally, I am a Comprehensible Input (CI) coach.
Comprehensible Input (CI) and carefully chosen authentic resources are my main instructional philosophies in order to develop my Novice learners' language proficiency. Once we have established a strong foundation, I also leverage Integrated Performance Assessments (IPA).
