Teaching Philosophy

I like making French classes entertaining and fun. For young children, learning through art contributes to the development of academic skills, now and in the future. I want my students to enjoy drama, music, and art, which will develop their thinking skills as they experience positive emotional responses to French learning. I strongly believe that learning and joy should be synonymous.
