TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Spanish teacher at College Edouard-Montpetit for 27 years. I have written a large number of cultural materials for Spanish and a tiny number for French. Everything I do is interdisciplinary and content-based. Here is the cultural component of the world language classroom, with subjects as varied as our wonderful students.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Interactive, based on content. Love to have lively class discussions so students learn to acknowledge and respect different points of view.
