Bienvenue a la classe de Français!
I am very excited to be teaching French at GHS. I started studying French at the age of 11 and French has taken me to many wonderful places. I'm glad you are joining me on the journey this year.
I studied French throughout high school and took the AP exam, which I hope many of you will set as a goal. I received 20 college credits before I entered Penn State University. If you continue your French journey through to the AP exam, not only will you learn to speak an amazing language and explore new cultures, but you too could earn up to 20 credits at many universities. This means you could graduate early, save money, or pursue other courses that interest you!
I attended Penn State University and majored in French and Business. I received a Fulbright scholarship and taught English in a French high school for a year after college. I also worked for AT&T in New York City for many years where I had a French boss. I have also taught French and ESL in Pennsylvania.
I am married and have three active sons. I live in Round Rock and you can probably find me on a ball field when I'm not at GHS. I am here for you this year - to teach you French language and culture, to help you navigate your time at GHS, and to support you in your goals. It is going to be a "belle aventure". I can't wait to see where your French learning takes you!
