Giuseppina Hazen

from Catania

Giuseppina was born in Catania, a culturally eclectic city located on the eastern coast of Sicily.  She earned her Laurea degree in “Foreign Languages and Literature” at the university of Catania. After moving to the US, she continued her studies in Virginia where she attended a MS in Secondary Education at Old Dominion University (ODU). Meanwhile, she worked for Norfolk Public School, and subsequently, joined ODU as an adjunct instructor of Italian. “I found it extremely rewarding and fulfilling to help my students reach their goals and succeed academically while sharing the language, culture and traditions of my country”.  Due to the demanding nature of her husband’s job that required them to move often and the needs of a growing family, she decided to temporarily leave teaching and focused on raising her children. In 2015, her family settled down in sunny San Diego, where “I can finally enjoy outdoor activities with my family all year round and, once again, pursue my passion for teaching and sharing the love for my country”.
