Laura Somia – World Languages
B.S. in Law, Université Paris X
M.S. in Teaching a Foreign Language, Université Paris X

Born in Paris and raised in the coastal southwestern town of Biarritz, France, Laura moved to Boston after finishing her Post-Graduate Teaching Certificate at University College London. Prior to her move to the UK, Laura studied and received a Masters from Université Paris X in Teaching French as a Foreign Language with a minor in Spanish. For the past three years, Laura has taught middle and high school French and Spanish at the British International School. There, she was fully involved in the school life, as she believes that being a teacher includes much that is beyond the classroom. Having been raised in a multicultural household and lived in several different countries, Laura is always encouraging students to try new things, push their boundaries, and broaden their horizons in and outside the classroom.
