Kayla Padgett

Chinese and Spanish Teacher


I am a recent college graduate from Indiana University- Purdue University of Indianapolis. I studied Mandarin Chinese, Spanish and International Relations. I have studied Mandarin Chinese for a total of 5 years and Spanish, not including my Puerto Rican culture, for 6 years. I have taught in various forms for about 3 years through youth programs, in a preschool, and with Boy Scouts of America. My experience has lead me to a greater passion in teaching as well as learning the skills I need to teach effectively to various ages. With teaching language I have personally experienced the doors it opens in knowledge, understanding, and connection to a world constantly networking. Americans are behind on this but I as well as others are working to be apart of that change. In my free time I enjoy learning new perspectives with a good heavy book, and creating art in its many forms.
