Anna Leversee manages the Somerville Enroot program. A firm believer in quality education for all, she is energized by working with people who volunteer their time and talents to make this goal a reality. Previously, as the Volunteer Coordinator, Anna recruited, trained and supported volunteers for all CCS programs. She joined CCS after two years of teaching English in Medellin, Colombia. There she worked as a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant at a major public university and taught teens and adults of all language levels at a cultural exchange center. She also volunteered at two nonprofits supporting at-risk youth. An early victim of the “travel bug,” she previously spent a gap year teaching in Montevideo, Uruguay and volunteered at several immigration NGOs during her junior year of college in Cordoba, Spain.
Anna graduated from Smith College with high honors, a degree in Spanish and a minor in history. She is also certified by the School for International Training in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL). Outside the office, she likes to read, go to the gym and study interpretation.
