Esperienza di insegnamento: I have volunteered teaching English to adults for over 12 years at a local non profit. I have loved volunteering because I love teaching people to speak English and seeing the confidence and joy that comes with learning a new skill. I also teach English to adults for my local school system. It's wonderful to see how my students have progressed and how it all comes together and makes sense when you practice a language. I also substitute teach at my local elementary schools and work mostly with children learning English. My overall job experiences have given me ideas on how to teach English creatively and effectively.
Interessi: I have 3 children who keep me busy! I also love reading (especially the newspaper so I can keep current with what's going on in the world), cooking, gardening, traveling and trying new restaurants. If I have time, I also like to decorate my home.
Istruzione: I grew up in Cleveland, Ohio and graduated with honors from John Carroll University with a degree in French and minor in Spanish. I studied at the Sorbonne in Paris, France where I lived for 6 months. I have also lived in Italy for a year so I can speak some Italian too.
Lingue parlate: inglese (Madrelingua)
