Hello! Bonjour!

I am excited to begin a new journey at OJCS teaching core French. My background includes teaching French in some capacity to every grade and including two years in kindergarten (many moons ago).I have taught the International Baccalaureate programme in the Middle Years and Diploma programmes, most recently in Nova Scotia from where I have moved. I studied French and theatre studies in university and post university education and worked as a set and costume designer for many years throughout Canada before turning to teaching.

Ottawa is still my home town as I grew up here and attended high school and the thing I love about Ottawa is the small town feel but a large sense of inclusion. There are so many great outdoor spaces for the public to go and enjoy family time. I am a big fan of skiing and hiking and and when possible extended trekking in beautiful parts of the world.
