Bonjour et bienvenue!
This year will be my 12th year teaching French and my 2nd year at West Leyden. I taught all levels of French at Jefferson high school in Rockford for 10 years. I was born and raised in France and came to the United States in 1999. I have a passion for teaching and for sharing my culture and language with students. In my spare time, I love to travel the world and discover other cultures. I have taken students to France several times. This past June, I took 30 Leyden students to the Auvergne region and to Paris. The next trip is in March of 2018. We will be going to Brittany, Normandy, the Loire Valley, Paris and Versailles.
This year, I will be teaching French 1, 3, 4 Honors and AP. I also sponsor the French Honor Society and the Foreign exchange program at West Leyden.
