Vanessa
My name is Vanessa and I am from Pennsylvania, USA. I lived in a small town right outside of the city of Philadelphia, and now I live in city center Madrid. I taught for 5 years while in the United States, and I received my bachelor’s degree from West Chester University, Pennsylvania. I taught preschool and first grade while in the US, and I absolutely loved it. I believe that I have a great passion for education. I have 2 younger brothers and 2 cats named Olive and Lefty. During my free time I enjoy listening to music, shopping, and spending time with family and friends. I am very excited to start this journey as your new English language assistant and I am looking forward to a year of learning, fun, and adventures!

Toni
Hello! My name is Toni and I am from Sacramento, California. I have been working as an English Language Assistant in Madrid for three years. Before coming to Spain, I studied at my local university and received a degree in Geography and English. Besides teaching, the things that I am most passionate about are fitness and travel. I also love to explore Madrid and learn more about the Spanish culture. I am looking forward to this school year at Siglo XXI and I hope that I will have the opportunity to meet you all!
