Angela Cohen was born and raised in São Paulo, Brazil. She graduated with a BA in Marketing from Anhembi Morumbi University and worked for over 13 years at BASF headquarters in São Paulo. A native Portuguese speaker, Angela learned Spanish as a second language.  As a Business-to-Business marketing analyst specializing in Latin American markets, she made periodic trips to many South American countries applying language in her professional experience. Through this process she acquired a vast vocabulary, including a wide range of expressions unique to each country, as well as cultivating a profound understanding of the different cultures and traditions. After a long and successful professional career, she retired to focus on her family and the wellbeing of her children. Angela has concluded her CMTE Montessori 3-6 training and is currently completing a comprehensive Montessori Spanish Curriculum for EAC. Her goal as a Montessori teacher is to enable children to learn a new language and to discover new cultures, while in the process, to appreciate and cultivate diversity. Angela lives in Ithaca with her husband, their two children and their dog Panda. She enjoys nature and peaceful walks on deserted beaches along with her family.
