In addition to teaching introductory or intermediate language courses each semester (Fall 2016 through Fall 2018), I have also developed course content and led classes as a teaching assistant in a cinema course taught at the Cannes Film Festival and an ancient art history course taught in Rome.

In the classroom, I use my background as a theater artist to foster a communicative environment in which students feel the freedom to make mistakes while also challenging themselves to develop their emerging communication skills. I value introducing students to a variety of francophone cultures found throughout La Francophonie of the past and present. To that end, I incorporate drama, film, and interactive historical activities that expose students to the history of the French language from medieval poetry to contemporary forms of popular music.
