My mother is from Krakow and grew up exploring the Polish mountains in and around Zakopane.
So, it is not surprising that she chose the Colorado Rockies when immigrating to the USA. Born and raised
American, means I am a native speaker. But, it also means I have been
exposed from an early age to The Melting Pot // Salad Bowl that
epitomizes what America -- a country of immigrants -- means to me. I
have a keen cultural sensitivity and curiosity of culture and
I studied communications, language, and dramatic arts, and received my
master's degree from NYU in New York City. My theatre background
informs my teaching, especially with Young Learners with whom we can
play language-learning communicative games and do role-plays. I am
very excited to be here in Lodz, exploring my Polish roots, and
working with Polish colleagues and children.
