Angela has a love of many cultures. Having engaged in service-learning projects in Kenyan villages, and having worked alongside locals high in the Andes, among other endeavors, she sees the good in people everywhere and enjoys seeing them happy and successful. Her love for the Spanish language grew especially while living in Peru and Bolivia, where she taught in homes and performed humanitarian work for nearly two years.
She studied Human Development and majored in Early Childhood Education at Virginia Tech, focusing on the curiosities and interests of individual students and creating an environment where true learning is the emphasized standard. Angela enjoys bringing different cultures and the local community into the classroom by facilitating opportunities whereby students can feel, see, hear, serve, and especially taste their way into learning and loving a foreign language!
Angela enjoys repurposing, sewing, camping, hiking, kayaking, and sharing those activities with her husband, two children and their ferocious 6 lb. dog, Grizzly. She also enjoys spending time in the Belle Meade garden and CSA–and having Austrian Winter Pea leaves as a snack on her way from one job to the next.
