Mrs. Toni Fonseca
This is my second year teaching at Central Academy and I am really excited to be a part of this amazing learning community! The majority of my teaching experience happened internationally while living in Brazil. My husband and I lived there for fifteen years, and our three daughters were all born and raised there until we recently when we moved here to the Treasure Valley. I love most things Brazilian, including jiu jitsu, the beach, barbecued meat, and soccer.
I graduated in 2001 with a B.A. in English Literature, and am currently finishing up my Master's degree in Applied Linguistics. I speak Portuguese fluently and just enough Spanish and ASL to be dangerous :) and I look forward to improving in both of those languages in years to come. I am really passionate about pretty much anything that has to do with languages, whether English or others!
My educational philosophy is that I can facilitate and promote the most effective and efficient learning for my students. I expect them to work hard and earn all the knowledge and skills that they will obtain throughout my course, but I also work really hard to support them in that journey. Their success is my success. I am looking forward to this year with these students.
If you have any doubts or considerations, please do not hesitate to email or call me.
Here's to a great year!
