Mrs. Andreea Gabudeanu
My name is Andreea Gabudeanu and I will be teaching ESOL at Metz this year. I have been teaching for 13 years. This is my first year at Metz Middle school and my 4th year working with Manassas City Public Schools. In my previous years I taught at Baldwin Elementary for 3 years and in Prince William County for 10 years. Overall, I have been mostly in the upper elementary grades and I taught English as a Second Language in the context of Language Arts with a focus on reading comprehension and writing across content areas. I was born in Bucharest, Romania. I am half Albanian, half Romanian.
I finished my bachelor in Foreign Languages and Literatures and Linguistics in Romania, Europe. I have a Masters in English Literature from George Mason University. I am currently working on my second Masters in Curriculum and Instruction, Advanced Studies focus, at the University of Virginia. Learning never ends!
I love traveling, cooking and connecting with others. I live with my two goldendoodles, my kids (both in middle school this year), and my husband. My extended family is scattered around the world so using technology to stay in touch is very important for me.
This year, I am looking to support my students in their back to school in person process. Above all, I love to get to know my students and help them find their voice and live their story proudly.
