TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Following a career as a journalist, I have been teaching ESL students for over a decade. I started teaching at a middle school in France, and am now a public school teacher in The United States. While teaching in the Bronx, as a New York City Teaching Fellow, I saw that high-interest material is essential to English Language Learners. As it can be hard to find, I started making my own material. Now I am happy to share it with you. I have formally mentored and guided student teachers into the classroom, so have a good understanding of what teachers need.

MY TEACHING STYLE

To give every student the tools, the background and inspiration to find their own creativity.
