Actually, French! French is a beautiful language and I loved the possibilities that learning another language opened up to me. I knew I wanted to travel, and this was one way to do it. I know everyone expects me to say English, but I didn’t love the books we were assigned in school and I resented having to take time away from my own reading to read what other people told me to.
Helping students to understand the beauty and joy of words and the power that words hold, and that they (the students) have access to that power.
