ENGLISH LANGUAGE EDUCATION


Experience

  • August 2022 - Lead English Teacher at North Seattle French School
    Now working as a resource specialist and curriculum guide for alignment with CCSS and state standards. We are creating a custom scope and sequence across grades. I teach fourth grade social studies, English, and math, while I also teach first grade English, science, and social studies. Bilingualism is not required, but as a francophone I am able to translanguage.

    Anglais En Fleurs English school for Francophone Students
    Anglais En Fleurs is my attempted English/French business model for a private hands-on, PBL English school. As this business never came to fruition, nor did the website ever receive proper professional translation, I share it here as an example of my capabilities.

Education

  • The University of Southern Mississippi
    Applied Linguistics
    2013
    Study Abroad research project for introduction to Qualitative Research. Under Joanne Burnett (now at Penn State) I worked with beginner French students studying abroad negotiating with host families for language, and interviewed host families on their impressions on French L2 learners, and their accommodation to English in the home environment paired with ELF (English as a Lingua Franca) in the nearby zone of commerce that was Nice, France. Through this I determined that the French classroom, because of the use of ZPD and comprehensible input, was the most reliable and coherent access to the language. This required bilingual transcription, translation, and the completion of a thesis in French. During this period of time I tested as a C1 in France for language proficiency.
