Hello, my name is Rebecca Carda! I was born and raised in Denver, Colorado USA. In addition to my TEFL certification, I graduated from the University of Kansas with a degree in Biology and an English minor. I have taught English in Korea and Poland for over three years. When I am not teaching, I enjoy creative crafts, traveling to see exotic animals, and reading.
I love learning, and it is my goal to foster that love for learning in my students by creating an exciting, safe, and curiosity-driven classroom. Seeing students show eagerness to try new things and think about new ideas keeps me inspired as a teacher, and I truly enjoy teaching kindergarten students. I am looking forward to helping every student try their best and develop over the year!


Hello! My name is Marissa and I am from Syracuse, New York. I graduated from Canisius College with Bachelors in English Literature and Creative Writing. I also hold a Master’s Degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) from the same college. While completing my studies, I also studied at Sophia University in Tokyo, Japan for a semester. In my time teaching, I have taught many ages ranging from 4 to 13, and a variety of different subjects.
I strive to be a teacher that helps foster love for English as a language, and love for learning in general. I believe that students need a good support system and I always encourage them to do their best. I am very excited to teach at LOTIS and to help my students learn and grow as both English speakers, but as students as well. I can’t wait to meet everyone!
