I am a New Jersey Certified Teacher of French and Italian with 19 years of classroom teaching experience, in middle school and high school.
I love to teach interactive lessons, which are personalized and fun! Since I teach in a 1:1 eLearning district, I have been able to enhance world language learning with innovative technology.
