I have been teaching French Immersion and FSL (French As A Second Language) since 2000 in Montréal (Canada), Santo Domingo (Dominican Republic), and Toronto (Canada). Member of the executive committee and secretary of the AQEFLS for 2 years (Association québécoise des enseignants et enseignantes de français langue seconde).
My classroom is an open door where children take ownership of their learning. Inquiry-based learning is my teaching philosophy. The student's curiosity leads our learning.
