English/French Teacher / Mentor
Caitlin is a language, literature and hiking enthusiast from New England who is currently teaching French and English at Fusion DC. Caitlin also serves as the English Department Head.
She grew up a devoted Red Sox fan in Northeastern Massachusetts and attended a French-immersion middle and high school from 6-12th grade. After graduating, she went to Middlebury College in Vermont, where she majored in Russian and Comparative Literature and spent her free time exploring the Green and White mountains, studying abroad in Siberia, and performing in, and eventually directing, a collegiate a cappella group. She followed up her time in Vermont with a Masters Degree in Teaching French as a Foreign Language in Monterey, California. During her time there, she taught French to graduate students, played and performed music for friends and community events, and managed to visit more than 10 national parks.
Back on the east coast, she is excited to tie her passion for comparative literature into both French and English classrooms, continue playing and being involved with music, and spend time with her family and friends who are now closer to home. She looks forward to exploring the DC area and finding some new favorite book stores and hiking spots.
