Professional Experience
 
   I began my teaching career in 1994 in North Carolina. Since that time,  I have taught all ages from preschool to university level in the areas of French, English, Elementary (4th and 5th grade and language immersion) and Autism Support. I have also worked as a corporate trainer and training consultant, primarily in the areas of state and local government agencies and non-profit human services agencies/programs. It is safe to say that for over 27 years it has been a great privilege not only to teach, but to continue my own learning path, earning several teaching certifications, a master's degree and soon, a supervisory certification in Curriculum and Instruction. I have been a proud faculty member here at Derry Area since 2017.

Change your language and you change your thoughts. ‒ Karl Albrecht
 
 

The limits of my language are the limits of my world. ‒ Ludwig Wittgenstein

If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his own language, that goes to his heart. ‒ Nelson Mandela
