Hello! My name is Angie and I am the Director of Education Programs and Services. My background is in EFL & TESOL (English as a Foreign Language & Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages.) During the span of 14 years in the EFL industry, I spent 9 years in S. Korea. I taught English at the elementary and middle school level and trained in-service Korean teachers how to teach English as a Foreign Language. I am also a TEFL Trainer. I have served as Assistant Director of Studies, Director of Courses and Center Director of various Language schools in Los Angeles.
The best part of my job is collaborating with teachers to create a community of learning where we share ideas for best practices and engage in professional development to constantly improve our students’ experience. My teaching philosophy is that language learning should be practical to the real-world, student centered and fun!
I can speak conversational Korean and Spanish. I would love to learn Arabic and Mandarin.
In my free time you can find me watching movies, eating snacks and going for a run. I love animals, the beach, traveling and trying different foods.
