I am still enthusiastic about teaching Spanish and French after many years. Special interests include Quebec and European literature, acting, writing, reading, travel, swimming, hockey, and baseball. I have lived and studied abroad and am currently studying Italian. Language to me is performance, one huge "script" which we assimilate, contextualize, and act out, unconsciously in our native tongue and consciously in others. I try to get students to gradually appropriate the language by "entering into" it directly.
