Loudoun County Public Schools
German Teacher
Woodgrove HS
This is my 34th year of teaching and I still LOVE it! I grew up in the county where I teach and feel great responsibility to grow our students' proficiency as well as overall esteem. I transport my immersion classroom with me to where ever my students see me--the hall, the library, the grocery store--so that they can push through the fear of speaking the TL in public. With high expectations and support (when needed), they will excel! As part of this, I take them on immersion trips to Germany each spring.

I enjoy sharing my methods and philosophy with new and veteran teachers. Educators are 'marketing professionals', and should strive to satisfy the customer by challenging them to exceed the expectations they have for themselves.
