My name is Judy Lamont (yes another Judy!) and I am going to be the Lead Instructor for your final class, Language and Culture. A few years ago I had the exciting experience of taking this same class with Judy Sharkey as my instructor. Looking back now, it was, and still is one of my favorite classes. It pushed me to move beyond my safe little corner of the world and classroom, to make many new discoveries and come to a new understanding of teaching, students and their worlds. I hope your experience has been and will continue to be as equally rich and rewarding.
A little bit about me….. I have a Masters in Secondary Education and I have survived two teaching internships! I have been both a high school French teacher and an ESOL teacher at the elementary level and most recently with adults. I have enjoyed teaching all of the various ages and I am excited to now have the opportunity to work with teachers.
As you head into your final semester of course work and prepare for your teaching practicum as well begin to create your final portfolio for certification, I know firsthand how stressful it can be! I look forward to helping you through this final year and hopefully have some fun along the way.
I am looking forward to meeting all of you on September 2nd!
