Angella Maingi, (6-9) Ex-Day Teacher
Angella is excited to be joining the New School Montessori family and is passionate about empowering children and creating beautiful memories that will last well into adulthood.
Angella has a bachelor’s degree in information technology from the University of Cincinnati, a bachelor’s in French from Institut Parien in Paris, France, and a master’s degree in management information systems from Wright State University.
Angella is passionate about diversity, human rights, inclusion, recently completing a diversity and inclusion certification from Cornell University.
Most of Angella’s life was spent working in information technology, but fate led her into the nonprofit world, working with refugees and asylees, getting them employment, education and advocating for them. She has worked as a Swahili and French interpreter and translator for the states of Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky.
Angella currently volunteers at Aiken High, Withrow High, AWL (Academy of World Languages), Roselawn Condon and Roberts Academy to mentor, intervene, and advocate for international students and their families.
Angella loves traveling and languages. When she is not working, she enjoys hiking, cooking and entertaining, but her greatest loves are sewing, refurbishing furniture and binge-watching documentaries.
