I am a French teacher at a secondary school in Toronto, Canada with 14 years of experience. I completed my Masters of Education degree with a specialization in Second Language Acquisition. I had the opportunity to work and learn from some of the leaders in this field, such as Miles Turnbull, Sharon Lapkin and Birgit Harley and for that, I am very thankful.
I currently teach both Core French and French Immersion and I absolutely love it. I am always seeking opportunities to learn and improve my teaching. My goal is to help students increase their oral proficiency in French. I’m trying to get away from the traditional grammar lesson and worksheet method of teaching. I’ve been doing that more and more over the last few years, but I would like to do that in virtually every lesson. Although I do believe that there needs to be a balance, I have never believed in extremes. I would like to share my experiences in the classroom as I embark on the journey of increasing students’ oral proficiency with you. Please let me know what you think. Hopefully, we can all learn from each other!
