Bonjour ! I have been teaching French (all levels) at Sentinel High School since 2010, and I have also been teaching French 1 for the Montana Digital Academy since 2016. I have a bachelor's in Art from the University of Nebraska, a bachelor's in French and a Master's in Education from the University of Montana. I taught English and lived in France in 2007-2008 as a participant in the French Assistantship program. I have also travelled to Québec and France multiple times.
I am very passionate about travelling, learning, and exploring the world through the lens of another language and culture. My passion is to make learning French interesting, relevant, and creative as we learn more about ourselves and the world around us.
