I’m so glad you’ve arrived! My name is Katrin Beinroth, and I am a teacher and school administrator from Mayagüez, Puerto Rico. I was born and raised in Puerto Rico, where I lived until moving to Rhode Island to attend Brown University where I completed a double major in Latin American Studies and International Affairs. After graduation, I decided to pursue a career as an educator and was fortunate to complete a Teaching Apprenticeship at the Shady Hill School in Cambridge, MA. I have taught since 2000, and have worked in public, private, and charter schools. I have a Master’s Degree in Urban Education from Simmons College. In 2008, my family and I returned to Puerto Rico. Since then I have been teaching English and Social Studies at Southwestern Educational Society (SESO), where I am currently the School Director. I am passionate about inspiring students (and now faculty and staff) to explore the world around them and to think critically about the past. I aim to cultivate meaningful student relationships and nurture an Explorer Mindset in my students. I enjoy spending time at the beach with my family, viewing and making art, and traveling of course!
This site is dedicated to sharing my adventures on my expedition A Circumnavigation of Iceland with National Geographic and Lindblad Expeditions during July 2023. Are you ready to be inspired?
