About the Author

Angelyn Balodimas-Bartolomei was born in Chicago to immigrant Greek parents. Her determination to master the Greek language brought her to Greece, where she earned her B.A. in Greek social work and Greek studies at Deree College in Athens. Angie then entered the Pedagogical Academy of Greece and, upon graduation, returned to the USA to study for an M.A. at Northeastern Illinois University in Linguistics and English as a Second Language (ESL). She then went on for a Ph.D. degree at Loyola University, which she received in 2004 in Educational and Leadership Policy Studies with a concentration in Comparative Education.

Angie currently is a Professor in the School of Education at North Park University for ESL Teachers' Endorsement. Recently she began teaching Comparative and International Education for students in the M.A. program. Angie is married to Paul, who emigrated from Italy to the United States as a child.
