“I’ve been speaking French my whole life. Having aspirations to be an artist with the intention of wanting to live back in France, I decided to move back to France after high school and try to get into a French fine arts program or university. After a year in the country and immersed in the language, I was accepted to L’École des Beaux Arts in Angers. I continued on a path as an artist for the next fifteen years becoming a computer animator and graphic designer. I discovered teaching in 2001 and never looked back. After five years of teaching CGI, I began to search for more ways to utilize my language skills more productively; thus dropping out of the “biz”. I wanted to continue to teach, but not art. I decided to fall back on my love of the French language and pursued my certification at GSU in 2009. I am passionate about speaking the language and feel that I can elicit this passion in other students by immersing them in class and sharing with them the opportunities that were available to me because of my language skills. For example, I was able to travel throughout Europe and the Caribbean Islands easier and to understand the complexities of world languages while teaching and living in South Korea from 2002-2004, I had the wonderful opportunity of working in the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta as a French Translator, and I had the unique experience of being on a game show in France where I ended up winning the grand-prize, which by the way can be seen on YouTube. Everyday, I share these memories (and videos) with my students in my classes both in high school and college in order to show them what you can do when you know more than one language.”
