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

Spanish is my native language. I am originally from Mexico City where I lived until I was 21 years old. When I was in college in Mexico, I decided to study Spanish as my second major. I then, started working on my master’s in Spanish with a concentration in literature and I had the opportunity to be a TA at the University of New Mexico. Since then, I have been teaching Spanish for SSL and SHL learners at different colleges in Houston and in the south of Texas.

How Long Have You Been Teaching?
