Bonjour! This is my 20th year teaching at McGraw. I grew up in a similar community in Jefferson County. I love to teach French. I learned to love language and different cultures from my foreign language teachers and mother while growing up. Some of my fondest memories of my education was traveling abroad to France and Germany with my peers and teachers. I could talk about my adventures and experiences every single day and I work hard to connect topics presented in the classroom to the real world. I hope I inspire my students to seek out the world and new cultures.
Outside of school, I enjoy reading, running, hiking, traveling, gardening, home renovation projects, camping, and spending time with my husband, our daughters, Amelie and Adeline, and our fur babies.
