I'm a certified teacher with 9 years experience teaching French, German, ESL and English composition and grammar, mostly at the secondary level. I would be willing to meet with students w/in a 20 mile radius of Castle Rock.
My philosophy of education is to educate the whole child. When I teach foreign language, I educate the hearing, seeing, cultural, and oral senses, and have the child engage in their own learning through creative activities. I enjoy giving students opportunities to explore the world where the target language is spoken. I have done this by including films in the curriculum with discussions of similarities and differences to our culture. I also have students regularly use the internet for cultural activities such as finding recipes from the target country, popular artists, banks, department stores, and many more.
I believe the way I approach instruction gives students sufficient background information to be able to communicate effectively when they visit the target country and that the experiences they gain from learning a language are lifelong.
