Upper School World Languages

French Teacher


After teaching in international schools in Los Angeles and Palo Alto, I came to Menlo in 1994. I teach all levels of French including an experimental course in French Cinema.

I graduated from l’Université Libre de Liège, Belgium, with a degree in Education. Then I studied sign language in order to work with deaf students. From that I learned really valuable lessons in the art of teaching. 

Outside of school, I love to travel (particularly in Asia and Quebec), work in my garden, attend foreign film festivals, tend to my animals, do yoga, and spend time with my students.
