  • Description

    I have a passion for languages, teaching and learning. I work full-time as a high school teacher and travel for two months every summer. I have a master's degree in linguistics with an emphasis on language pedagogy. I have experience teaching English, Spanish, Portuguese and Mandarin Chinese. I have taught all ages: kindergarten through university.

    For the summer of 2021, my main focus is to improve my French. I would also love to learn other skills while working abroad this summer.

    I arrived in Italy on 13/06/21. I have tested negative for Covid 19. I also received both doses of the Moderna vaccine in February.

    I am currently doing workaway in Lyon, France.
