I was a science teacher at the high school and college level before I got sick and had to leave the classroom. Suffering from autoimmune issues for the past fifteen years, I set out to find healing on the yoga mat and through other lifestyle changes. My approach to teaching is a combination of clear, concise, easy-to-understand instruction from years of experience as a science teacher in a classroom, concern with safety and compassion and caring from dealing with a chronic illness most of my adult life. By the way, I love to smile. My joyful approach to teaching is quite infectious in a good way. I now use Gentle Somatic Yoga which is appropriate for anyone with chronic pain to help release muscle tension and create greater ease of movement. I can work with anyone -- whether you are chair-bound or a young person who needs to learn to relax and release stress.

Humor is one of those concepts that is impossible to translate literally. So much more depends on the jokes told than the mere words used. Nuances and cultural context add invisible layers that can trip non-native speakers up. In the past, when I watched humoristes (comedians) with my family and even when I understood the words, often, the punchline fell flat. I’d sit there wondering how those around me were giggling. As time passed, I began to find myself also amused as opposed to bewildered. …

French grammar guru Carol Beth L. is back on the blog with this guide to the passé composé, the imparfait, and when you should use each of them... If you've been studying French grammar long enough, you may know that French has two different forms of the past tense: the passé composé (composed past) and the imparfait (imperfect).
