Summary

I recently relocated to Cincinnati, Ohio and am seeking employment. I am passionate about my love of teaching languages. I am committed to broadening my students awareness of other languages and cultures in order to instill in them the fact that there are many different ways to do or say something. By influencing them to understand the world through the eyes of French culture and history, I wish to impart acceptance of diversity. My love for French grammar instruction also helps my students analyze their writing in English and helps them to improve. As a non-native speaker, I am always pleased when in France I am complimented on my French, with a surprised reaction from the ones complimenting me as they do not believe I am American. I have worked hard to represent the authenticity of French. I have immersed myself throughout my life in the French language and culture and feel that I am able to instruct students in a positive way to learn French.
