Bonjour et bienvenue!
This year will be my 14th year teaching French and my 4th 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. I took students on a tour around France in March 2018. This past summer, I took 12 students to my hometown on our first exchange with La Perverie. This coming October, we will welcome 26 students from La Perverie on the exchange. We are also planning another tour of France in March 2020.
This year, I will be teaching French 1, 2, 3, 4 Honors and AP. I also sponsor the French Honor Society and the Foreign exchange program at West Leyden.
