​Teaching Experience

  • Brighton Area Schools / Brighton, MI
    French & Technology Teacher / 2016 – present

    As a 6th grade French teacher, I teach an exploratory French class that lasts one trimester. I also teach one section of a year-long introductory technology class where students learn the basics of computers and move up to eventually programming robots.
  • Oxford Schools / Oxford, MI
    Online French Teacher / 2015 – present

    I support K-12 students with their online French courses in Connexus and Middlebury platforms, which they take through Oxford Virtual Academy. I also have online office hours where students can set up some face-to-face instruction or discussion time via Google Hangouts or Zoom.
  • Oakland Christian School / Auburn Hills, MI
    French Teacher / 2015 – 2016
    I taught French I, II, and III to middle and high school students using a completely online curriculum that emphasized authentic, real-world communication. Some of those real-world situations included a simulated plane trip to Paris and getting lost during a visit to Lyon.
  • Ann Arbor Public Schools / Ann Arbor, MI
    Teaching Intern / 2015
    I completed my student teaching internship under the guidance of Leslie Landrum (see references below) by teaching French to 6th, 7th, and 8th graders at Scarlett Middle School. The classes lasted for a quarter, a semester, and a full year, respectively.
