Barbara De Bernardi – Founder, Director & Teacher
Barbara designs and teaches all Insieme a Chicago programs! Native of Sondrio, Italy, she studied “Lingue e Letterature Straniere” at Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, in Milan. After an extensive experience as a foreign languages educator for preschoolers, she graduated with a Master in Linguistics in 2010 at Northeastern University, in Chicago. Since then she has been researching ways to bridge the Italian early education system with the American one. Loving both her home country and Chicago, she is raising her sons bilingual and bicultural, hence her inspiration to create a community like Insieme a Chicago.
