HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I received the Ohio Foreign Language Association Leona Glenn Award for Outstanding High School Teacher for the 2008/2009 school year.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I received my B.A. from the College of Wooster in Wooster, Ohio. I spent my junior year abroad with IES in Nantes, France.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

After many years of teaching from texts that did not meet my needs, I have developed a wealth of classroom materials to help students learn a language easier, and for presenting culture. It is my hope that other teachers will also be able to benefit from them. I have taught French and Spanish for 35 years,and have worked as a textbook reviewer and freelance writer for EMC. I have studied and traveled in France, and traveled in 11 other foreign countries including Quebec, Canada, Spain, Costa Rica, Mexico, Monaco, Switzerland, England, Germany, Scotland, Italy, and China.
