Meet Bella Rao

I grew up in Newton, MA—not too far from CCW. When I was 18, I moved to France and ended up staying for five years. In my first year, I lived with a wonderful Franco-American family and took French classes at the Sorbonne. The following four years were spent pursuing a literature degree at the American University of Paris. Outside of my courses, I peer-tutored students in writing, taught English classes to French children, traveled, and enjoyed time with friends. I am grateful to be able to spend my time back in the States with CCW. I was immediately welcomed into this tight-knit community of educators and families and look forward to an exciting fall semester.
