Teaches: Middle and High School French

Tell us about yourself. I teach all levels of French (middle and high school). My husband is David, a second generation alumnus of Ben Lippen. We have 2 daughters: Moravia (10 years old) and Simone (7 years old). In my free time, I like to garden (vegetables, fruits, edible flowers, regular flowers), tend to our chickens, and slowly restore the home we moved into in September.

What is something most people don’t know about you? I became a believer in between my junior and senior year of high school while at the summer program for the Governor’s School for Science and Math.

What are you passionate about? I am passionate about stewardship of the Earth.

Why do you choose to teach at Ben Lippen? I started off just teaching one French class at BL, but then through experiencing the community and amazing students, I decided to accept a full time job teaching Spanish as well.

What do you love most about teaching your students? I LOVE the students! So many of the students have character and tender hearts. It is an HONOR to partner with the BL families.
