I am a former high school teacher in the state of Illinois. Having taught both French and Spanish for the past thirty-two years, I have had the pleasure of sharing my passion for languages with all age groups from junior high to university students. During this time, I have tutored students in French from all ages. I have also had experience tutoring a broad range of subjects outside of foreign language study. I have a bachelor's degree from the University of Illinois in French with a certificate in teaching. This was accompanied by a minor in Spanish language. I have a Master's degree in Media Communications from Governor's State University and continuing education studies in Education, Psychology, Sociology, and Social Studies. My experience with youth is not limited to the classroom. I am heavily involved with the Lions Club at the local, district, and state levels. My involvement includes many service projects but my main focus is with youth: the Leo Club (a younger version of the Lions) and Lions Quest ( an instructional program for social interaction). I enjoy teaching the youth of today, each experience is unique, and I find I learn from them as well.
