Teaching at the high school level for more than 30 years allowed me to see and use many new curriculums and teaching methods. After teaching in several different subject areas I continued in the area that I most love and that is teaching French as a Second Language. Doing professional development on a regular basis both within and outside my school district encouraged me to to back to school and complete my Post Graduate Studies in Education with an emphasis on 21st Century learning and students in the 21st Century classroom. I love teaching, travelling and learning about cultures around the world!
I believe that students should learn in the manner that is most suited to them. Because of this I work at tailoring my lessons to the specific needs of my students - whether it be as a group or on an individual basis.
My most precious awards are my graduated students who continue to come back to visit me years after they have begun their adult lives. That in itself is better than almost anything!
I have a Bachelors of Arts Degree with a Professional Teaching Certificate. I have also completed my Post Graduate Studies and received my two-year Diploma in Teaching and Learning in the 21st Century Classroom! :) Learning is a lifetime experience!
