TPRS COACH, TEACHER TRAINER
Carol is the third co-founder of the TriState TCI peer learning network. She teaches high school French at Bishop Eustace Prep in New Jersey, having come to language teaching as a second career. Carol started out with a textbook-based curriculum but found something lacking for her students, for her program, and for herself as a teacher. She discovered TPRS over 10 years ago, and has since turned the French program around, increased the retention of students through upper levels, and built a compelling, comprehensible classroom practice that engages students and brings her joy. Carol is a respected voice of calm wisdom on FaceBook, blogs, and other social media where teachers gather to share ideas and ask advice about teaching with CI. She is also trained as a TPRS coach and teacher trainer. She coaches, presents at conferences, and does teacher trainings locally, nationally, and internationally.
