I really enjoy linguistics and how they affect our English language. One of the biggest influences on English has been and continues to be French. I love the French language and culture and love to share that passion with students of all ages, from young children to adults. I am also passionate about teaching others to express themselves in writing in our own language and how to build a good vocabulary which will help them in school and in their work.
I taught both French and English in Williamson Co., Tennessee, for over 25 years. I have taught French at the middle school and high school level in Metro Nashville for the last two years. (Hume-Fogg, Hillsboro High, J.T. Moore Middle School.) I am currently displaced from Metro due to the cutting of over 200 teaching positions. I have extensive coursework in ELL (ESL, ESOL) and have done some tutoring in that area, as well as in the area of test preparation for SAT and ACT reading and writing sections.
