About Catherine

I'm a licensed teacher in Utah, currently teaching grade 1 in a dual French immersion school. I am American-born, but lived for 12 years in France, where I worked as a translator and interpreter for the French government. For the past 20 years, I have taught full-time at French immersion schools, at both elementary and middle school levels. I have also directed summer French camps, French book clubs, and excursions and trips to French speaking countries.

I've always been an advocate for second language learning for children, since it's during childhood that they most easily acquire language. I'm knowledgeable about language learning methodology, and familiar with many strategies for helping students, at any age, learn to speak a new language. For young children, I often use songs, games, puppetry or skits to help connect meaning to new words and vocabulary. With students in traditional French language classes, I integrate listening and speaking activities with reading and writing, using funny dialogs, short videos, cartoons or role play. I'm a good coach and can help kids organize a notebook, develop strategies for remembering vocabulary, or mastering verb conjugations. I have a positive, up-beat style, and am skilled at creating lessons that are both fun and productive.
