TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Born in Montreal, Canada, I am a native French speaker. I moved to Denver, Colorado where I began teaching French for Catherine Bédard at her private language school and through Colorado Free University (CFU). I am also a children's book and greeting card illustrator. I have been teaching French and Spanish to adults with Catherine and to children in after school enrichment programs at Denver Public Schools (DPS) for over 30 years. I have created and co-created many materials with Catherine Bédard, a native of France and also French and Spanish teacher. Together we created the materials for the Spanish and French program at DPS in the 1990’s. We decided to publish our first books in 1999, “Easy French Activities” and “Easy Spanish Activities” along with other activity game books. Soon after the company Languages For Kids was started. I went on to create several books independently. When I am not teaching, I spend much of my time creating new materials and finding innovative ways to teach through games and activities that will make language acquisition an enjoyable and stress-free experience.

MY TEACHING STYLE

In addition to reading and writing, I always incorporate some kind of Total Physical Response (TPR) activity or game and song to reinforce the lesson. I use a lot of images and color when I teach. I feel that changing activities during the class is important in keeping the students engaged. Generally I speak in the target language and find that students learn more quickly when everything is hands-on and activity oriented followed by some kind of writing. I basically use the same teaching methods for children and adults.
