Education

I received a B.A. in Linguistics and a B.A. in French along with a minor in Theatre at the Univeristy of Georgia in 2012.  I am a lifetime member of the Zeta Zeta chapter of Pi Delta Phi-French Honors Society.



Experience

I have taught one semester of French I and II at the high school level.  I am very excited to be here and starting my first full year at Mason Creek Middle School.



Bio

I am 26 years old and was born and raised in a very small town in Southwest Georgia.  The only time I ever left was when I was accepted into the University of Georgia in 2009, an experience that changed my life forever.  From childhood, I have always had an innate ability to comprehend and speak French without having been exposed to it by family members.  It was this ability that opened my eyes to the world.  If I had not enjoyed learning French so much, I most likely would not have left the little town of Sylvester.  French opened the door to UGA for me, and it was here that I learned that not only do I have a knack for French and its history and culture, but that I have an ability to learn multiple languages as well.  I then added Linguistics, the scientific study of language, as a major and enrolled in German and Arabic, and I am currently teaching myself Italian.  In learning a multitude of languages, one becomes immersed in the culture, which, in turn, allows for a wholistic understanding of the world and its people, how we live and work, and how we can continue to make our world better than the day before.  I am very excited and eager to open up these very same doors and share this world of knowledge and opportunities with today's youth.  Together, we can make a change for the better, one day (and one language) at a time.
