Travel Experience

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.
