Teaching Associate and Language Fellow
Although I was born in Paris, I spent most of my life in the suburbs. Last year, however, I move back to Paris into the 17th arrondissement. For three years I studied English at la Sorbonne and art history - both at l'Ecole du Louvre and at la Sorbonne. Currently, I am working on my final paper: "the urban typography in American art during the 30's". For enjoyment I do sculpture, drawing, cooking, and reading. Because I am used to the city, it has been fun discovering the United States and life in the countryside. I especially enjoy crossing the lake in the morning to attend my classes.
Teaching is a profession that I love, and I have enjoyed my previous experiences. Mount Holyoke students amaze me with their level of French and their curiosity about every aspect of French and European culture. In addition to teaching, I also did side jobs to earn money. Back in Paris, I once served as a "chauffeur" and tour guide for the brother of the president of China and his wife. We drove around for three days in my mother's old Peugeot because they wanted to see Paris through the eyes of a student rather than a tourist guide. I am sure it was very unlike what he was used to back in China!
