Je vous présente... Lily

A new member joins the Open Wide the World team. It is an honor and my pleasure to introduce: Lily, my new proofreader! Lily will be proofreading the Spanish language products for my Teachers Pay Teachers store.

Lily is a longtime friend, a sister of sorts, from the beautiful city of Oaxaca, México. Lily and I met in high school in our senior year, when I had just returned Stateside after a foreign exchange year in New Zealand, and Lily herself had just arrived as an exchange student in my family's home in the U.S. It was a magical time in both of our lives, a time that passed all too quickly, and has seemed almost a dream when looking back from the years that followed.

In those many long years since our high school foreign exchange adventures, Lily has amassed experience in Clinical Psychology and psycho-pedagogical studies (still trying to wrap my head around that one!), and most recently, my favorite: Bilingual Research Associate at an American university's Early Childhood Education Institute. A gal who loves travel, languages, and children? A perfect match for Open Wide the World!

I hope in coming months, beyond just proofreading tasks, I hope Lily will feel inspired to share pictures and stories of her beloved Oaxaca, as well as maybe a few of her mother's wonderful, traditional Mexican recipes.

In the meantime, I extend to Lily a heartfelt
