The first time I traveled abroad was through the enthusiasm and exposure to France from my 6th grade teacher. He showed us a film of Paris and I imagined going there and speaking French. Lessons were fun and easy. Now I have a Bachelor of Arts from Skidmore College in French and Modern Languages. For more than 20 years I have taught French, English and History in after-school programs, on tour coaches for educational student tours, and as a tutor. I have lived and worked in France teaching sports and music to French children in Burgundy and Dordogne regions. I am a certified high school teacher in both French and English from Penn State. My philosophy is to teach in a manner that is fun and accessible to all. Education and knowledge is light that opens up new worlds and opportunities.
