Hello! My name is Chelsea Nowak and I am an English as a New Language teacher in Buffalo, NY. Prior to teaching ENL, I taught middle and high school French. Ever since I was a little girl, I was fascinated with the French language and culture. After a senior class trip to France, I was hooked and knew that I had found my calling. I completed my B.A. in French Adolescence Education at SUNY Brockport and abroad in Avignon, France. In 2011, I was one of fifteen individuals in the United States gifted with a Fulbright Scholarship to teach English in France through the Franco-American Teachers-In-Training Institute. I lived and taught English throughout the Loire Valley in all academic levels. This incredible experience opened my eyes to teaching English and inspired my Master’s work. I completed my Masters in Education in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). During my graduate studies, I spent a month teaching English in Puebla, Mexico. It was one of the most challenging yet rewarding experiences as non-Spanish speaker. And most recently, I spent a summer tutoring English to a French family in Grenoble and traveling throughout Europe with my husband. I absolutely love to travel and experience different ways of life. I truly believe that I wouldn’t be the person I am today if not for the experiences I have had. The teaching and learning of languages is a passion of mine, and I am excited to expand my classroom on an online platform.
