About John

I have a wife and two children. I am the youngest of six children, three of which, speak french fluently. From nineteen to twenty-one, I lived in multiple areas of eastern France and western Switzerland. While there, I spent 30 minutes to an hour studying grammar texts and the remainder of the day speaking with natives. A huge transformation occurred. I learned to love others and embrace new cultures at a higher level.

Currently, I am a full-time French teacher in Gulfport, MS on the high school level. I teach levels 1-3 currently and have inducted 11 students in the "Société Honoraire de Français". These students have been pushed extremely hard and have met all the expectations I've placed upon them. I strive for perfection and look to improve my teaching skills and methods. I am confident in myself, my abilities as an instructor, and as a francophone.

I spent 25 months spent in France/Switzerland (Francophone) completely immersed within the culture.

I have a B.A. French from the University of Southern Mississippi and Mississippi Department of Education secondary certification. I also have 2 Years instruction experience at the secondary level.

I am in constant communication with francophone entourage via social media.

-Minor and Endorsement attached to the B.A. French from the University of Southern Mississippi
-Mississippi Department of Education secondary certification

I have a great love and respect for linguistics. I hold myself to high standards and expect likewise from students.
