Welcome to the world of foreign language! As the German philosopher Johan von Goethe said, "He who knows not a foreign language, knows not his own!" I am a firm believer in that. As a 32 year veteran of the public school classroom, teaching both French and Spanish, I know how much fun learning about the world can be! I employ a great many of the most up-to-date strategies for teaching foreign language, but most importantly, I am committed to developing a global citizen for the 21st century in all my students. I have a bachelor's degree in French education (graduating with high honors) from the University of Delaware, an MAT degree in French from Georgia State University with a minor in Spanish. I have an education specialist degree from Augusta State University (now known as Georgia Regents University). I have worked with more than a dozen student teachers over the years and have studied abroad three times (Paris, Mexico, and Madrid). I have won numerous awards and am a member of several professional organizations. I am also an adjunct college instructor for Georgia Military College working with students primarily online. I have interpreter and translator experience having been trained as a court interpreter and the head translator for a local bilingual publication. I have also been an interpreter and a manager of interpreters for the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta.
I am just as enthusiastic about learning and teaching today as I was 32 years ago! I look forward to working with you and/or your child!
