Adriana Marrero, M.Ed.
Faculty Support, English as a New Language
Adriana earned her bachelor of arts in History, a minor in Spanish, and a secondary education teaching credential from Gonzaga University (Spokane, WA) in 2018. She then taught high school Social Studies (Global Studies and World History) for two years in San Jose, CA as a member of the 25th cohort of ACE Teaching Fellows (University of Notre Dame). Adriana loves teaching because of the servant and relational aspects of being an educator. She believes in a cura personalis approach to teaching-educating the mind, body, and spirit - so she enjoys getting to know her students inside and outside of the classroom. Adriana has always loved to learn about other languages and cultures (inspiring her first host family experience in Finland in 2012, and college semester abroad in Italy in 2016) and it has inspired her interest in international education and serving English language learners. Now in her third year teaching 8th grade and 12th grade English at St. George's College in Santiago, Chile (ChACE 20), she is passionate about utilizing her Spanish skills and experiences in the Chilean classroom to serve as an effective educator in a dual-language context. Adriana loves to cook, play sports, sing, and explore the outdoors, and is looking forward to working with you!
