New for (almost) spring

It feels like spring today, and my energy is higher than it’s been for a while. Windows are open and I can smell a whole new season.

So, I’ve updated my website! Take a look at

New offerings this (almost) spring include a 2-part webinar through Fluency Matters in March and new openings in my intermediate conversation classes (see photo above). Click here to contact me for more information.

I’m looking forward to traveling to Vancouver, Portland, and Oklahoma City from February 23 to March 4 to present with Rachelle Adams at the Vancouver Secondary Teachers Association, the Vancouver School Board Languages Conference, and the Southwest Conference on Language Teaching. It will be a special treat to get to see colleagues and friends in Portland in between the two conferences.

Rachelle and I were also delighted to be asked to be the keynote speakers at the GWATFL (Greater Washington Area Teachers of Foreign Language) Spring Immersion Day on April 29. More info can be found here.
