My Catholic beliefs influence all that I do and are a main contributing factor to my desire to help others.
I have helped build world language programs within K-12 schools and at the collegiate level. I have also taught within those programs and developed creative teaching methods to help students who have historically struggled in foreign language courses to excel. I work with principals and faculty members to evaluate the current foreign language program and determine what professional development opportunities would be most beneficial within the program. As part of my customized solution, I will arm teachers with the tools they need to be more effective. I consider myself a mentor and ensure that all teacher feedback is delivered professionally and respectfully. I have a passion for world languages and want future generations to have that same passion. By helping students be successful in their foreign language classes we can create excitement for learning, and for accepting, cultural differences.
As a certified K-12 Chinese and ESL teacher and mentor, I am excited to provide tools and insight to dramatically improve the success in your teachers’ classrooms.
