I have taught elementary French for a couple years at the university level, but most of my experience comes from the last seven years teaching high school French. I teach all levels, from 1-4AP, and I also moderate the French club.
My style is very energetic and fun because there is a certain level of energy which is required to keep high school students engaged. I'm very straight-forward about my expectations, and I demand a certain caliber of participation and understanding in my classroom. I reward hard work with fun activities, cultural supplements and personal experience.
Outstanding French student award for several undergraduate and graduate level courses.

In addition to teaching, I enjoy traveling to Europe and the Caribbean, exercizing at the gym, walking my dog and eating out with my family.
