I have been learning French for fourteen years, and I am currently teaching in a small town outside of Houston, TX.I created these resources when I taught French at a charter school in the inner-city area of Houston, TX since access to resources were limited and we did not have a textbook. With these resources I created, my students consistently outperformed the other schools within our district and showed drastic improvement. I hope that these sources are helpful, and please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions!
When it comes to teaching grammar, I like to teach in both English and French so students are more clear on what exactly the rules and such are. Also, I try to emphasize patterns over memorization as it tends to yield more consistently positive results. It also seems to assist in future lessons since the structure is similar regardless of level. I also am a strong supporter of the visual learner, especially when your students come from various language backgrounds. Not only is it more engaging to learn vocabulary through pictures, but it is also much less confusing for students that struggle with their English since they have less code-switching to do. Not to mention, it's much easier to remember pictures than words! Everybody wins!
I was a member of the Golden Key International Honour Society as well as Pi Delta Phi, the collegiate French honor society.
I received my Bachelor's in French as well as International Studies from Baylor University. I am currently attending graduate school to get my masters' in French at Virginia Tech's online campus.
