Originally from the north-west suburbs of Paris, I moved to Chicago in 2014 to start working at UChicago. I have always loved travelling, discovering new cultures and studying languages. I hold a Licence de langues, littératures et civilisations étrangères en anglais (BA in English literatures and civilizations) from Paris IV-La Sorbonne and a Master de FLE (Master in French as a Foreign Language) from Paris X-Nanterre. Before coming to the US, I taught French in England, Russia and Bulgaria, from kindergarteners to adults. I enjoy teaching at all levels with a preference for university students, and I have found a very fulfilling environment here at UChicago.
