St. Lawrence Crew's Women's Varsity 8+, Fall 2007. Throwing up "Too Much Rock for One Hand." I'm at the far right.

Content area: Foreign language, mainly French.
Teaching placement: Lafayette High School.
My interest in teaching: America has seriously dropped the ball when it comes to preparing its citizens for a globalized economy and society. How are we supposed to keep up with our international counterparts when they speak three more languages than we do and know more about what's going on in our own capital than some US citizens do? I want to be a part of a movement to change that.
Kind of classroom I hope to create: One that supports bilingualism and interest in other cultures as well as fosters an ability to think for oneself and a love of learning in general.
