How Has Spanish Played a Role in Your Personal and Professional Life?

I am a native Spanish speaker and even though my family and I traveled quite a bit during my childhood, we always maintained the language and the Andean variety alive at home. As a professor, I love teaching Spanish to speakers of other languages and now I am ready to teach it to students who have different needs from the students I have been used to.

How Long Have You Been Teaching?

Over 25 years

More About Me

I am from Quito, Ecuador. I live in Columbia, SC now. In my free time, I love to read, run (weather permitting), watch series and films on Netflix/Prime and knit. During the pandemic I learned to crochet and how to make flaky, delicous croissants!
