Newburgh, New York
My name is April. I am currently enrolled in the Masters program, Division of Education, at Mount Saint Mary College. I am working towards a Masters in Science degree, Adolescence Education, with a specialization in Spanish & Hispanic Studies.
I graduated from the University of Albany in 1998 with a political Science degree. Although the subject matter is interesting and at times empowering, I have to admit, I never used it. After graduation I moved to the Maryland shore where I passed the days at the beach and the nights making frozen drinks for tourists. Although, they are times to remember, I needed something more. I traveled and traveled and traveled, like a vagabond with little money, making it to more than fifteen different countries. I returned back to New York, where I continued to engage in the thankless restaurant business. I then realized that teaching was for me. I donít know exactly how my past experiences have brought me to this point. Maybe because, I think that the world is such a vast and magnificent place that I would like to share it with others. I canít imagine spending my entire life between two bodies of water. Thereís so much life and culture out there that many never see, or experience. So, like a gardener, I would like to plant the seed of possibility into the youth of today.
In January 2006, I entered the Masterís program. I needed to clear up some deficiencies in my content area, Spanish, so I decided to study abroad in Segovia Spain. I loved it and canít wait to return. Now, I am just studying fulltime and substituting once in a while on the side. I hope you enjoy my website.
