Sonya Gneiting

 I have been teaching ESL for 10 years now, six years here in the Adult Education Program at Alpine District.  I feel like this is my dream job. I absolutely love teaching and helping people to understand the English language and American culture. It has been so rewarding to know that I am an instrument in helping many people feel successful here in this country. I understand the challenges of learning a new language because I have lived in 2 foreign countries. I too, had to try and learn the language of their countries and integrate into their culture. It was a very eye-opening experience. I love these people and they have become my friends.
      I have 5 children and 3 grandchildren. I love to spend time with them. In my free time, I love to exercise and watch movies. I also love to travel. Learning about new cultures is fun for me.
