This is my second year in the Ankeny School District! I am excited to teach 6th and 7th grade French and Spanish at Parkview Middle School.
Eight years teaching French 1-5 at Lee’s Summit North High School
Three years teaching French 1 and the Foreign Language Exploratory at Raytown South Middle School
During my undergraduate and graduate years, I studied abroad several times in France and in Greece. In 2012 & 2014, I chaperoned Lee’s Summit students to France for a two-week tour and home stay. I received a scholarship to attend a teacher’s workshop at the Centre de Linguistique Appliquée in Besançon, France, from the American Association of Teachers of French in 2013. Many other trips abroad, I traveled with friends/family or lead groups of students.
