Geovany Landzaat was born in Colombia, South America.  She came to the USA at the age of 10 to meet her adoptive parents in Los Angeles.   She lived through the challenges of being an English learner.  After entering college, she realized that Spanish was really part of a deeper passion - a passion for language.  She studied both Japanese and Spanish.  She chose Spanish Language and Literature as her major because she wanted to learn more about her Latin-American roots and its rich culture.  She graduated in 1999 from California State University of Northridge.

Her first teaching position was in the Los Angeles Unified School District as an English as a Second Language Adult Educator.   In 2006 she received a teaching grant from the Education Department of Andalucía, Spain where she taught English to children from Kinder to 6th grade.  It was there that she decided to obtain her Elementary School credential upon returning to the USA.  For the last three years, she has taught Transitional Kinder - she is passionate about planting the seeds of love for learning in these youngsters!    She also enjoys sharing her love for language and admiration for cultural diversity with her students.

Geovany enjoys living in a multicultural, multilingual family.  She is happily married to a Dutch man and has a 12 -year old daughter and a 5-year old German shepherd lab mix.  She enjoys salsa dancing, cooking, traveling and having friends from all over the world come over to her home.  She considers herself a Global Citizen.
