Bethany Johnson has been a TESOL instructor for 10 years and a teacher in the Bellingham Public Schools since 1998. She is an ELL Specialist at the middle and high school level and finds great joy in working with her students and families. Growing up in South America informed her love of other cultures as well as her interest in languages. Besides spending time with her partner and two young children, she loves traveling, hiking, and listening to live music. There is no better way she can think of to spend 4 weeks of her summer than helping Western students uncover their passion around teaching English in the exquisite city of Queretaro.
