About Me

Eva Gerena

I am originally from Puerto Rico. I moved to the mainland after graduating from high school to pursue a degree in Political Science at the University of Massachusetts in Boston.   I fell in love with Boston right away. This city offered so many opportunities for me that I decided to stay and expand my horizons.

While attending the University of Massachusetts in Boston, I was able to study abroad in two amazing countries; Spain and Mexico.  I learned about their cultures, politics and history.  After graduation, I was fortunate to find jobs in government agencies, the State House and the Massachusetts Office for Refugees and Immigrants, where I was able to contribute to the public sector.

After many years working for the Massachusetts State Department, I decided to change careers and began working for the Boston Public Schools (BPS). I also went back to school and completed a Master's degree in Education at Cambridge College.  I have taught Spanish in a dual language school and as an ESL Teacher in an elementary school setting for the BPS.  As an educator, I enjoy teaching and find it very rewarding. I find pleasure in seeing students learn a new language, as well as different cultures and traditions.

Currently I live in Boston with my husband and two wonderful children.  As a family we enjoy traveling, visiting farmer's markets, playing boardgames and 
watching movies.
