Mission Statement

Our mission is to strengthen urban and rural communities through experiential, hands on teacher training for diverse populations and a commitment to bringing foreign language education to under-served public elementary school students. Quality Language Foundation offers youth language learning services to individuals, groups, and educational institutions. Our academic approach is interactive in nature and innovative in content. It is adapted to match the learning needs and capacity of our students while emphasizing their creativity. In areas where no-one else is offering foreign language after school and summer programs, QLF is filling the gap.

BIO

Nissa Quill and Catharine Martin founded the organization in 2002 with the intention of providing foreign language instruction to children in Maryland and across the Metro DC area. The focus soon expanded to address the need of instructor training and preparation. Quality Language Foundation expands its service area every year, serving a wider audience of students ages 3-10. Summer programs, before- and after-school programs, and programs for the Home School community have served over 3000 students since QLF opened it's doors. Nissa Quill is the President of QLF. She brings over a decade of teaching experience to the program. Having earned her BA in French and Political Science at Hood College, Nissa was certified to teach French in 1993 and spent 6 years in the public schools. In 1999, after the birth of her son Andrew, Nissa took some time off before starting her own programs. Developing the programs from her home office, Nissa was able to balance family and work in a satisfying way. Currently Nissa has two children and lives with her husband and family in Ijamsville, MD.
