I completed a Spanish major from La ULACIT in San José, Costa Rica and then received a B.A. in Spanish, English, and Bilingual Education from Calvin College. Shortly after Calvin, I received an M.A. in International Development with a focus on Education for Women and Girls from Eastern University in Philadelphia. I have had the opportunity to teach in Costa Rica, Puerto Rico, Indonesia, and various Spanish-English bilingual schools within the United States. My husband, Ebuka, and I have three girls — Ifunanya, Kosiso, and Chimamanda. As a family we enjoy traveling–most especially to my husband’s home country of Nigeria–hiking, kayaking, reading, trying new foods, and learning languages.
