For those who may be wondering, I am originally from Saint Charles, MO, near Saint Louis and obtained my Missouri and Kansas certification to teach French K-12 from Rockhurst University. I am also currently pursuing my Master’s degree in French at UMKC. The majority of my teaching experience has been at Académie Lafayette, the French immersion charter school in Kansas City, where I primarily worked with grades 3-5.
My most recent trip to France was from late September of last year to early May of this year, where I was an English language assistant to middle school and high school students in Strasbourg. While I had an unforgettable experience with plenty of time to travel and explore, I am very happy to be back in the Kansas City area doing what I love. Teaching French here in Blue Valley has been what I’ve hoped for, as I am passionate about opening students up to the world through foreign language. Additionally, while I enjoy working with high school students, I have always wanted to start my career at the middle school level. I couldn’t be happier being able to share my knowledge of the French language and culture with YOUR middle schoolers!
