Staff Faces Around GALA
GALA is excited to introduce - ESL Teacher, Ms. Jennifer Broa!

Why are you excited about GALA?
I have been fascinated by different cultures my whole life. GALA offers me the very unique opportunity to work alongside people who share that same passion and to learn more about their backgrounds. When students are immersed in another language, they also get immersed into that culture, since language is such a big part of culture. It is a treat to see students’ views of the world open up and watch them become appreciative of other’s points of view.

Tell us about yourself
I grew up in Cleveland, Ohio, the oldest of 5 siblings. In the 8th grade, I met a foreign exchange student from Mexico. She didn’t speak any English and I immediately befriended her and tried helping her to learn English. In hindsight, I believe this is what started me on the path of learning Spanish, traveling to Mexico, studying Linguistics and becoming an ESL teacher. Over the last 15 years, I have taught English in Mexico, the United Arab Emirates and China. I have two daughters, aged 10 and 12. They have traveled the world with me, but are most excited about living here in Cleveland with their grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. 

What do you do when you are not working?
Traveling, going to the beach, scuba diving and skiing are some of my favorite activities outside of work. Spending time in nature and being outdoors makes me feel whole. I also enjoy cooking and baking at home with my daughters. 

What is your favorite activity and/or your favorite place in Cleveland?
I love all the beautiful parks in Cleveland. Whether it’s just a walk in the Metroparks or a hike through Cuyahoga Valley National Park, it is always great to be able to connect with nature.
