I have taught French for over twenty five years, and Spanish at times.
I emphasize the development of interpersonal communicative skills and cultural open mindedness in my students. I always offer a multi-sensory experience to my classes, using authentic documents. I present my students with a variety of strategies to help them learn vocabulary and grammar with ease. I help students "step into the shoes" of the French people. I foster spontaneous and extemporaneous expression in French in the classroom in all of my classes.
