Elisa Jennings – Leadership Fellow

A Chicagoland native, Elisa Jennings is getting Bachelor’s Degrees in both English and Classics at Barrett, the Honors College of Arizona State University, with concentrations in Linguistics and Ancient Greek, respectively. Having tutored people in Spanish and Latin as well as essay-writing, Elisa finds fulfillment in helping people grow and wants to integrate linguistics theory with language teaching.

She is interested in how language interacts with social power and the processes behind language evolution as well as the literature of other cultures. She believes in the value of reading a piece of literature in its original language and the importance of both fluency and literacy.
