Bonjour and welcome!

I'm very excited to be teaching at Cityview Community School of Innovation and French Immersion Kindergarten and First grade this year. 

My family members are explorers, so I have lived in many countries. I was born in Freetown, Sierra Leone, then my parents went back to France for a few years. Next we went to California where I finished school and became an American citizen. I got to travel to Mexico, Guatemala, and Honduras. I also received a degree in political science and languages. Later, I finished a Masters in Public Health and an EdD in Education.

I went back to Paris, then on to Egypt, Lebanon, and Saudi Arabia where I lived and taught for many years before returning to Paris.  I've been in Minnesota for 16 years. 

I have six children, three girls and three boys. Now that they are all grown up, I am able to go back to the work I love - teaching!

I am looking forward to a wonderful year with all of you.
