With a B.A. in French from Rosemont College, an M.A. in elementary education from Villanova, and further studies over the years in music, Latin, and art from such varied places as University of Florida, Oxford, and the Louvre in Paris, I can attest to the value of education as a foundation for a rich, satisfying life. My 35 years of teaching experience, ranging from pre-school through grade 12, from reading and art to voice lessons, French, and Latin, have provided me with many happy hours helping young people discover the joys of learning about our interesting and exciting world. My most satisfying moments, I feel, come while working one-on-one, helping students discover and build on their personal strengths in order to acquire reading, writing, and other language skills, whether in English, French, or Latin. To me, few things are more fulfilling than watching a little one decode and understand those first simple stories, or catching the flash of surprise as a student suddenly realizes how to use the various cases of a Latin noun.
In my free time, I love traveling, reading (especially mysteries!), solving various sorts of puzzles, music, and various crafts.
