    Name:  Cherie Andreassen

    Position(s): ELL Teacher

    Education / Teaching Background:  Bachelors - Spanish (WWU); Certificate - Teaching English as a Second Language (WWU); Master of Arts in Teaching - English to Speakers of Other Languages (UW); Certificate - Parenting Education (SPSCC)

    Over the past 17 years, I have taught language in many settings (preschool, K-12, community college, and university) both in the U.S. and overseas.  I love learning about people, places, and cultural identity.  My husband and I lived in Armenia for two years, where I taught English and was a teacher trainer for the Peace Corps.  I have also worked for nonprofit organizations in Latin America, spending three months in Ecuador, two months in Honduras, and three months in Nicaragua.  I love traveling, and I've been to Spain, England, Eastern Europe, and Kenya, in addition to most of the U.S. states.  I took a few years off of teaching to stay home with my four young children, but now that they are in school, I'm very happy to be back teaching at the secondary level with Tumwater School District!
