Bonjour! I am very excited to be teaching both French and English as a Second Language (ESOL) at Lake Ridge this year (2016-17)! This is my fourth year teaching but my second year at Lake Ridge, and I am very happy to be here! To give you an idea of my background: I graduated from James Madison University (JMU) in 2011 with my Bachelor of Arts in French. I then moved to France for a year, where I taught English at several elementary schools and had the opportunity to interact with my colleagues entirely in French. This also provided me with an amazing opportunity to experience French culture first-hand. Upon my return to the United States, I went back to JMU to finish studying to be a teacher. I then graduated with my Master of Arts in Teaching in the spring of 2013. After college, I taught English to Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) at Kilby Elementary for two years before coming to join the excellent team here at Lake Ridge Middle School!
