About Emily

I have taught high School French and English for over three decades. I recently retired from a full time position teaching French and English. Besides a regular classroom setting, I've tutored individual students in both English and French. I have a B.A in English and a master's degree in French. I also hold a current CA General Secondary Teaching Credential.

I love teaching. I've always added fun things to my classroom to engage students. In French, my classes have written poetry, created children's books in French, written plays that they wrote themselves, learned traditional and contemporary French songs, and played the traditional outdoor French game of petanque. Through my many trips to France with students, I've been able to acquaint them with the history, art and culture of France. As an English teacher, I've taught vocabulary, grammar, reading and writing. We've written poetry, recited poems and speeches, and performed plays. My students have studied mythology, Greek plays, the Odyssey, Shakespeare, and literature from the Medieval Period to modern times.

I'm a patient teacher, committed to my students. I know all students can learn, and my job is to help every student find a way to learn and enjoy the experience of learning
