My husband, Brendan, and I are currently living and working at an American school in Montagnola, Switzerland (a small town just outside of Lugano). I am a Spanish tutor/Elementary School teacher and Brendan is the website coordinator for the school. Before living in Switzerland, we lived in Rochester, New York, USA, where we met in college. After graduating, we moved to Salamanca, Spain for one year so that I could pursue my Master's degree in Teaching Spanish and Brendan could teach English. We quickly discovered after returning to Rochester that we desperately missed Europe, so now we're here to get to know a new part of it! In our free time we love studying languages on Duolingo or Rosetta Stone, hiking, yoga, photography, and enjoying coffee/wine with friends and family. We love music (in fact, it is the reason we met- he was listening to the group Dispatch and I wandered over to see who was playing that great music). We have music playing in our apartment whenever possible and love anything that you can't hear on the radio's most popular stations. We are looking forward to exploring all that Switzerland, Germany, France, Austria, Italy, and many other countries have to offer!
