I began studying French when I was five years old; it’s always been my passion. When it came time to choose college programs, Spring Hill’s minor in French was a great fit for me. Dr. Windish makes it a priority get to know all of her students and engage us in different ways. Her ability to connect with people is genuinely inspiring. I’m excited to apply everything I’ve learned from her in my own classroom.

I know my students very, very well. I know what their interests are, and their strengths. We’re so close, almost like a small family. It’s wonderful to have that personal relationship, and watch my students grow and blossom.
