Florence has been teaching languages (French, Spanish and ELL) since 1994 at all levels (K to 12 and adults) both in BC and overseas. Having learned several languages herself, she strongly believes in engaging communication activities being key to language learning. While doing her M. Ed. in teaching second languages she developed a website for language learners and has integrated technology in her teaching ever since. She is thrilled to be part of the AVS team this year and aims to widen her students’ linguistic and cultural horizons through her language courses.
