Bonjour! This is currently my 13th year teaching at Pitman High School. Although I had once taught 8th grade French in addition to beng at the high school, I now remain full time in the high school teaching French 1-5. I graduated undergrad from James Madison University in 2004 with a B.A. in Modern Foreign Language. I studied French with minors in Spanish and Secondary Education. I graduated with my M.A.T in 2005 from James Madison as well. I am currently taking classes through Arizona State University in order to fulfill the NJ requirements for teaching Spanish.


During my free time, I enjoy crafting, doing yoga, training for triathlons, traveling, being outdoors, and hanging out with my baby. I had the opportunity to study abroad in Paris while I was at JMU, but I have also visited numerous European, South American countries, and even India.
