R: RCDS is a wonderful community. What is your favorite thing about being a part of it?

I love working with students in the classroom, watching them learn, and seeing their enthusiasm about the life of the mind. They keep me feeling young and inspired. I love working with my wonderful colleagues who also teach me on a daily basis.

C: Currently, I am learning...

Spanish with Elvira Rebate (RCDS Lower and Upper School Spanish Teacher). She is an inspiring teacher.

D: Describe what makes you proud of RCDS students?

I am proud of their willingness to take risks with language, to express complicated ideas in French, and to allow the acquisition of language to open their minds.

S: Superpowers. If you had one, what would it be and why?

It would be the ability to travel to different places in seconds. Travel is what opens my mind. It allows me to think in new ways and understand differences.
