Hello! My name is Bri Battista. I am from Austin, Texas in the United States. I graduated from Texas State University with a Bachelor’s of Science in interdisciplinary studies. I am certified in early childhood education through 6th grade. While completing my degree I was given the opportunity to teach in South Africa. After this experience, teaching abroad became my goal. I am overwhelmed with joy to start my first year of teaching at Cornel!
My goal as an educator is to give every child an equal opportunity to meet their greatest potential. The success of our classroom depends upon the group as a whole. I want to build a strong, structured community of learners that are eager to be involved in their academics. With relative and engaging material I will encourage interactive and hands on activities. My first year at Cornel will be a new experience. I am not only excited about my role as an educator but my role as a learner. I look forward to growing with my students throughout the year.
While I am not teaching I look forward to exploring all of the beauty of Taiwan. I am eager to immerse myself in the new culture. I enjoy traveling and am looking forward to seeing new places while living in Taiwan.
