Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to the 2018-19 school year! This is my fifteenth year teaching French at Johnson High School, and I am looking forward to getting to know new students as well as seeing returning students. We have a lot to accomplish together!
One of my primary objectives is to help students acquire language in a natural, conversational way. We do this by creating stories together, focusing on acquired language plus a few new words or expressions. We also read and watch video clips about the culture of French-speaking countries and compare it to our way of doing things. For example, did you know that in Morocco, people eat with only their right hands? Why do you think that might be? We'll talk about it in class!
Besides teaching students about the French language and Francophone cultures, I want to support students as they become thoughtful, service-oriented individuals. I enjoy listening to students' stories and having conversations with them about how to improve our community.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with questions! Have a great year!
