Meet The Instructors


Luisa Rocha – I am Luisa Rocha and have a bachelor’s degree in psychology. Since I graduated, I have worked for organizations that contribute to social development. I identify myself as someone who is enthusiastic about social change, social justice and equity for all individuals for whom we work.

I am currently attending Marian University pursuing my Master’s degree in Education and I have taught for the last 3 years in a charter school setting. Also, I am very excited about this new teaching experience and looking forward to working with the students and families at Mary Rigg Neighborhood Center.

 


Jackeline Bravo – I am a Fulbright scholar from Colombia. I received a Bachelor’s degree in English and French at the University of Narino in my country. I am currently finishing the MA in TESOL (Teaching of English to Speakers of Other Languages) at the Indiana University-Purdue University at Indianapolis. I came to the US in the Fall 2021 with my family, and we enjoy learning about the American culture. I love teaching English and help others succeed in their life projects through the learning of this language. I plan to study a Doctoral program to become a teacher educator in the future, however, if I am able to accomplish this goal, I would never like to stop teaching ESL students. I truly believe that, as once Nelson Mandela said, “education is the most powerful weapon that we can use to change the world”, so I would like to contribute to this change through bilingual education.

 


 

Stephen Wright – My name is Stephen, I have been interested in helping people develop for many years, first starting with Indyreads GED program to working 8 years in Ukraine teaching English. I enjoy the fact that people I help will help others in the future.
