About Nancy

I taught French and Spanish for 35+ years after living in Paris and Mexico during my college years, and was never finished innovating in order to engage students and make learning rigorous but fun.  I love seeing my students' lightbulbs turn on after being dim or burnt out.  I use all the intelligences to teach so that every student has a chance at success.  I won numerous of district and state awards for my efforts but what really mattered was that my kids loved the language and understood how to manipulate it.  I also co-owned a company that provided teacher units for teaching those difficult concepts in French and Spanish that many students find counter-intuitive, so I have a lot of tricks up my sleeve.  I always try to find a way to help my students understand.  I miss the classroom since retiring and I'm eager to work one on one with students who need help.
