cropped-201706_summer-programs-tesol-portraits-wk2-02-hart_1.jpgHello! My name is Avery Claire Lussier. I am currently a senior attending the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, pursuing a degree in English with honors and a concentration in The Study and Practice of Writing. I was first introduced to the TESOL field through my work as a tutor at the UMass Amherst Writing Center, and in the summer of 2017 I received my TESOL Certification at Hampshire College. Currently, I am training through Breathe for Change to receive my RYT-200 (Registered Yoga Teacher), and B4C Wellness Champion Certificate, which provides me with eligibility to implement and run wellness programs at schools. I hope to carry my knowledge of yoga and wellness into my work as an educator. After I complete my B.A. in May 2018, I will begin pursuing my Master’s in the Art of Teaching at Smith College.
