TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching foreign languages since 1991, including German, French, and Japanese at a variety of grade levels (1-12!). I've presented at local and state conventions and have even won "Best in State." I have taken students all over Europe to bring the language to a relevant and meaningful level. My lessons are taught so that students are using the language immediately. We have a ton of fun in class while keeping it real.

MY TEACHING STYLE

The class is very interactive and exciting. Most of my students say it's their favorite class of the day - it isn't a 40 minute lecture with worksheets, and it isn't taking notes only to fill in blanks later. Students are up and moving and shouting out answers. It's controlled chaos, really; but the results are amazing!
