WORLD LANGUAGE TEACHER / FRENCH
I am very excited to join the Cedar Hill Prep faculty. My passion for teaching started 18 years ago with York Board of Education in Ontario, Canada as a substitute teacher and as an International Language Program teacher, teaching Language Arts, Math, and French as a second Language to Elementary and Middle School students.
This provided me the opportunity to then work as a French Teacher at one of the largest private schools in Toronto. For 9 years, I served as a French teacher and department head for grades 4-8.
Creativity is the key to teaching. Using technology, arts and crafts, and music will motivate my students to learning the French language and help them succeed.

The Multiple Advantages of a Multilingual CurriculumThere have been a number of studies in recent years that suggest people who speak more than one language are in fact more intelligent. An article written by the New York Times highlights that learning multiple languages could improve cognitive skills beyond those related to language, which is a considerably different viewpoint than previously thought.
