I love to read and write. I spend my free with family and friends cooking dinners and going out for coffee and conversation. I like to play soccer and I enjoy watching the World Cup. I love going to the movies with friends, and I enjoy finding new places to eat.

Prior experience:
I have worked with children ages 5-8 at a soccer academy when I was in Cochabamba. I have also been a tutor for English language learners. And I was a peer tutor with incarcerated youth here in Washington State. I traveled to Bolivia last year and toured many cities while I was there.

Why I’m going to Colombia:
I chose to teach in Colombia because I would like to know more about Colombian culture, the food, and the people. I think teaching will give me the opportunity to get to know Colombian culture and people on a personal level. I enjoy assisting others with their goals and this experience will give me a chance to help students achieve their aspirations of learning a new language.
