Señora Averett is a lifelong language learner and began her pursuit of fluency in Spanish within the Mercer Island School District. Her international business studies at the University of Washington gave her the opportunity to enroll at the Universidad de Granada in Spain. After completion of her degree, she traveled throughout Latin America conducting business in Spanish and spending half her time in San Pedro Sula, Honduras and the other half here in Seattle. Along the way she has consistently taught children and adults alike, in group and individual settings. She is passionate about helping students of all ages expand their language abilities in a safe and fun environment. She looks forward to sharing her enthusiasm for the Spanish-speaking world with the Emmanuel Day School community.
