TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've taught French, Spanish, and English in my career which began in 1990.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I like to motivate kids.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I've presented at our state language conference, have gone to the annual AATF convention regularly. I fly under the radar most of the time. I'm just here to attempt to financially offset my edpenditures on fantastic work and inspiration from peer colleagues! They're selling ok so I'm looking forward to what happens when I can fix a few more up to a publishing level. (I am the queen of typos due to poor typing skills and patient students who see my skills in spite of this fact!)

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

French and English Majors Spanish Minor Teaching Endorsements in all three areas K-12. Master's Degree in Effective Teaching.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Extensive travel experience.
