More about my life and education...
I am a “cheese head” from Wisconsin. 27 years ago, I fell in love with my husband (a former French student for only 2 lessons) who is a native Coloradoan physicist/ math teacher. We have 2 beautiful girls that I raised bilingual in French, and a tuxedo kitten, Lolo, who is 10 months old. I’ve been teaching French for 34 years (preschool-university) and English for 4 years. I have lived and studied French in Rennes, Paris, and Grenoble (for Masters’ work in French literature).
