Hi! Thanks for stopping by my blog and taking a minute to learn a little about me. I’m American born, but I’ve been speaking French most of my life, and have lived back and forth between the U.S. and Europe. I currently live in the U.S. because I have a wonderful husband who sweetly proposed and convinced me to leave France.
I’ve never looked back. 🙂
I started out as a high school French teacher, and I taught middle and high school FSL for nearly a decade before moving to middle school French immersion.
I love learning new things and finding new fun ways to teach something. I am always amazed how I have learned from my students. I love movement and fun, because I really struggled to pay attention in school. I think that learning should be fun, and I wish more fun would have happened for me as a student.
I have a beautiful family that I love so much, and I spend every minute with them that I can. We love to read books together, take walks, or ride our bikes to get pizza and ice cream. I’m pretty much always on the go, and unless I am sitting at my computer working, I have a really hard time sitting still.
I LOVE TO READ! It is my very favorite thing to do. I’m usually reading 2-3 books at a time in English and French.
I began my journey on Teachers Pay Teachers in 2014
several years ago, because I found myself scraping by at the end of every month, trying to pay my bills. It has been a huge blessing, allowing me to pay my bills and put some money into savings for my son’s college. I think it has made me a better teacher, because I am so excited to share new ideas with other teachers, and I have found some amazing teacher friends along the way who have helped me freshen up my own lessons. I love the sharing of the community and I am so blessed to have found it!
Thank you so much for all you do everyday! Teaching is never easy, and often the little things we do each day seem to go unnoticed. Please remember that they are very noticed, even if the thanks are not always given.
