English Program and Teacher Institutes Coordinator
Madeline Beath grew up in Tennessee and has always had a passion for people. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and Spanish before moving to Mérida, whose version of southern charm had captured her heart when she studied abroad here in 2012. For the better part of a decade, Madeline has worked with mostly teens and pre-teens in diverse classroom settings in and around Mérida, which inspired her to pursue her Master of Science in Social Work from the University of Tennessee. Madeline loves working with youth and is dedicated to violence prevention, community empowerment and trauma-informed practice. Madeline strives to promote an interdisciplinary collaboration between educators and social workers to take on the challenges youth face in and out of the classroom. Madeline is the English and Community Projects Coordinator at Habla.
