Vianney is our Spanish Language teacher at New Summit Academy, which means so much more than working in the classroom (although she is an incredible classroom teacher as well!) Vianney has been a member of the NSA community since 2013, and alongside her teaching responsibilities, serves as a student Academic Advisor and takes great pride in providing our students with immersive experiences in the culture of Costa Rica.
She helps to prepare students for weekend cultural activities, takes part in our work with Hogar de Vida, and often accompanies our students to town to learn more about Atenas.
When asked what her favorite aspects of working at NSA are, Vianney responded “I really like to develop relationships with the kids and to learn about their culture and experiences. It is also really fun to see them in the process of learning Spanish and learning about my culture, especially when we dance to Latin music or cook typical food.”
Thank you, Vianney, for your passion and efforts in connecting our community to language and culture of Costa Rica!
