teacher for 14 years in Forsyth County Schools, I have now changed positions at my school and serve as the Instructional Technology Specialist, assisting teachers to use technology efficiently, effectively, and engagingly in their classes.
A Georgia native, I was lucky enough to begin learning French when I was 8 years old. I loved everything about it, and studied French every year of school from that moment on. After high school, I attended Young Harris College in the mountains of North Georgia. While at YHC, I met my future husband. I studied French during the course of earning an Associate of Arts from Young Harris and then transferred to the University of Georgia, where I earned my Bachelor of Science
in French Education in May 2000. My husband and I married one week after graduation and I began teaching French in Forsyth County Schools that fall. Our son was born in July 2002. In Fall 2009, I was part of the opening staff at my current school. In Spring 2012, I earned my certification to teach English
Arts. In May 2014, I earned my Master's of Education in Instructional Technology. Throughout my time in FCS, I have taught French 1-6, AP French
Language & Culture, and International Baccalaureate French B Standard Level and Higher Level, in addition to 10th Grade Literature
When working one-on-one with students, I prefer to communicate with the student's teacher when possible to be certain that the topics addressed are the ones most needed to help the student achieve success in the classroom or on national assessments, such as AP or IB Exams. Tutoring sessions at the lower levels will focus equally on language acquisition (vocabulary
) as well as production skills (speaking, writing
, and listening). At the upper levels, the focus is most often the production skills, with grammar and vocabulary supplemented to improve these skills.
