Update: At BMCC, I was encouraged to participate in the Paris/CUNY Exchange Program at the Sorbonne Nouvelle.

Update: I earned a B.A. in French-Literature and Childhood Education at Hunter College
and am working on an M.A. in Bilingual/Bicultural Education at Teachers College, Columbia University. My experience at BMCC helped me to form my philosophy of education and become a bilingual teacher. I earned a Teaching Certificate in Childhood Education (Grade 1-6). My goal is to develop a bilingual after school program for children, where they will enjoy a bilingual environment in French and English.
