I'm a recent college graduate from the U.S. spending a second year teaching English in northern Italy!
I love travel and languages. I studied journalism and Italian at college. I spent a semester in Perugia a few years ago. Since then I've lived in Mantova, Italy for a year teaching English, returned to the States to work in a university Study Abroad Office, and then decided to come BACK to Mantova to teach again. Just can't stay away from Italy and Europe! :)
When I'm not in the classroom, I'm a fan of meandering side streets, sipping cappuccino, devouring gelato, or curling up with a good book.
Because I'm in a homestay-type situation in Mantova, I can't offer up my room to anyone at this point, but I hope to get involved as a host in the future. I'm really thrilled that a site like this exists, and I'm looking forward to being an active member here.
