I have been teaching World Language (French, Spanish) at the elementary, middle and high school levels for 19 years. I regularly present foreign language teaching methodology workshops at state, regional and national conferences and in teacher preparation programs at various universities. I dedicate a portion of money earned through TPT to the financial support of students and teachers at the Panama School in La Concha, Nicaragua and the Fontamara School Porte au Prince, Haiti. Learn more about the schools HERE.
I am very communicative in my approach and rely very little on textbook materials. I enjoy creating authentic speaking and writing activities for students and you will find many of these activities on this site. I maintain a site on foreign language teaching ideas. Be sure to check it out for some great resources. Visit my website here.
I have been working closely with state (MA, NH, NY, NJ), regional (NECTFL) and national (ACTFL, NNELL) language organizations for over 12 years. I have have had a number of responsibilities from chairing exhibit hall and advertising efforts to directing language strands and presenting workshops at institutes and conferences.
I am Franco-American of Canadian descent. I have a DEUG (Diplôme d'Études Universitaires Générales), a BA and an MA in Applied Linguistics with a research focus on psycholinguistics, sociolinguistics and second language acquisition. I have traveled, lived and studied in Europe, Canada and Latin America and have a strong interest in language policy and cultural enrichment.
