Elizabeth Madeira

Elizabeth has been teaching and tutoring students ranging from preschool to high school since graduating from Belmont University with a double major in Spanish and Education. She studied abroad in Santiago de Compostela, Spain, where she fell in love with the country and its culture, and as an adult she has taken several trips to various regions of Mexico. She taught Spanish in both Rutherford County and at Battle Ground Academy in Franklin, and since bringing home her first child has taught Spanish part-time to preschoolers and worked as the Sunday School director at St. Bartholomew's. She now has 3 children ranging in age from 6 months to 6 years who keep her busy and smiling. She is excited to return to teaching at the high school level again and is especially passionate about sharing with her students an appreciation for how acquiring another language serves as an entry point for learning more about the world and its people. She can't wait to foster her students' desire to read, speak, write, and comprehend the beautiful and widely-spoken Spanish language.
