Screen Shot 2015-10-28 at 11.06.05 amMy name is Celinda Corsini. I am an Italian teacher with 11 years experience in teaching ab initio Italian for the International Baccalaureate. I began creating this website in 2011 and last updated it in 2015. I would like to thank Aaron McLuckie, who helped with the initial brainstorming; James Humberstone, who introduced me to WordPress; and Bryce Lindstrom, who was always available for technical support.
