French is not only a language for me. I like to teach about France, her people and their cross-cultural experience, her history and their stories. Transmitting a global knowledge is my priority.

My favorite project is to have my students give a major presentation about a specific topic. I like to see how deep they went into their investigations and how they have learned to transmit what they have found. It's, so far, my favorite memory of teaching. My endeavors outside of teaching include four novels published as of August 2014 (in French), Two Graphic Novels published as of August 2014 (in French) and serving as a Game Designer/translator (Pen & Paper Role Playing Games).
