Educator in Alabama
Welcome! I am a career French language and culture guru. After working in manufacturing and logistics with an international company straight out of college, my interests shifted to hone in on teaching language and building cultural competence as a means to foster the notion of global citizenry. In order to further my passion of building proficiencies in both language and culture, I completed a M. Ed. in Foreign Language Education in 2007 as well as a Ph. D. in Romance Languages (concentration in Linguistics) in 2014. Focus areas of professional interest for me are vast yet intersecting: education, curriculum and instructional design, support and training for world-languages teachers, travel, and the incorporation of established and emerging technologies within educational settings. Most importantly, I hope to bring learners together to promote peace, equity, and understanding on a global scale through my work. I definitely strive to create lifelong, globally-minded learners out of my students and colleagues who go on to become advocates for language and culture.
