Kristina Kvarnlov-Leverty graduated from Grinnell College, studying languages and linguistics. She worked in refugee and immigrant communities in Germany and then in Minneapolis until going back to school to get a MEd. for teaching ESL. For the last 12 years, she has been working with young people in public schools. She enjoys watching as students gain confidence in their abilities in English and navigating their world. She is excited to be part of Anything But English and dig back to her own experiences trying to figure everything out in environments where she couldn't use her own native English speaking skills.
