Paola Barcaccia was born and raised in Pesaro, Italy. She studied at the University of Urbino, where she earned a Master Degree in Sociology.

At the same institution, she started an academic carrier in the field of Sociology of Culture. During this time, she discovered her passion for teaching and the potentiality of a personal enrichment through this carrier. She moved to Northern Italy and she started teaching Italian as Second Language to high school foreign students. In 1995, she moved to Southern California, where she raised a family and studied art.

During these years, she kept teaching Italian privately at all levels. Fully aware of the challenges any students face approaching a new language, she developed a personal teaching method in which art and sensorial stimuli are used to improve the communication process and facilitate the language acquisition.

She worked for Fondazione Italia as language instructor. Teaching Italian classes through art, she was able to further develop her own methodology. As a result of her creative approach, she was later invited to UCLA as trainer for a professional development class at UCLA Italian Department and also, on a regular basis, for workshops on Italian culture.

She has recently joined the Continuing Education program of The Santa Monica College as Italian instructor. Supported by her knowledge and experience, this course offers a relaxed and informal environment where classes are taught in a creative and entertaining way.
