 Based on her work during the summer of 2016 she was chosen to present a seminar workshop entitled "The Intercultural Classroom" at the American Association Teachers of French (AATF) annual convention in St. Louis in July 2017.This presentation focused on the importance of creating a classroom atmosphere rich in cultural diffusion, and how to integrate cultural expression as a means to create a diverse learning community.

 After the workshop she was approached by the editor of the National Bulletin, about disseminating the information to a wider public, in an article to be published in the November issue of the National Bulletin.
