Bonjour et bienvenue 🇫🇷 Welcome to my teacher page at Madison City Schools! Although I have just recently moved to Madison with my family, I have been teaching and sharing the French language and culture for over ten years. I moved to Alabama for the first time in 2004 where I worked in the manufacturing sector; however, I decided to start teaching French in 2007. My new career as a teacher really inspired me, and I ultimately completed the terminal degree in my field in 2014. As you can see, sharing the experiences of language learning, global citizenship, and travel have encouraged me to be a lifelong learner (and lover!) of the French language and culture. The term for this type of person is francophile, a word that describes me 100%. I am so excited to share the world of learning French with you in my classroom this year! Outside of school, my favorite activities are reading a good book, going on adventures with my family, traveling to France (obviously), spending time with friends, and cooking. I have been married to my husband, Anthony, since 2007. We are the proud parents of two daughters, a mini-dachshund, and one very old tabby cat.
