Degrees and Certifications:
Ingrid Zas fris de Ravelo, M.Ed
My name is Ingrid Ravelo and I am excited to be a part of Lightridge’s team. I am passionate about multicultural education and multilingualism. I have twenty years of experience teaching languages to a variety of groups and levels. I have been a professional development presenter and a teacher mentor. I have a bachelor’s degree in Modern Languages, a master’s degree in Educational Leadership from VCU, and I recently finished a TESOL certification at GWU.
I am a native Spanish speaker, I was born in Colombia and raised in Venezuela. I have two daughters: Carla is 18 and she is going to GMU this fall. She graduated from Heritage High school. Lorena is 13, she is a rising 8th grader at Harper Park Middle School. My husband Joaquin is an IT Senior Engineer and works for Verizon. We love to travel. In our last trip, we visited Argentina and Uruguay. Amazing countries with lots of picturesque landscaping, good food, nice people … highly recommended.
I am eager to start the new school year and explore world languages together.
