My name is Rachel and I’m from Washington, DC. I grew up speaking French as a second language (I attended French Immersion schools) and was constantly immersed in other languages and cultures in my ethnically diverse community. I’ve studied French, Japanese, Russian, and Spanish, and have traveled to just under 30 different countries. I’ve lived in the US, France, Canada, South Korea, and I am currently living in Puerto Rico, where I am studying towards a Master’s in TESL. I’ve been teaching since 2007, including ESL (English as a Second Language), French, Spanish, and piano.
I am passionate about language learning/teaching, traveling to new places, and meeting people from different cultures. I love reading about history (including alternative history, such as the research of Graham Hancock and Gavin Menzies), music, ethnic foods, dancing, sprinting, and weight-lifting.
