I started teaching my native language Spanish, since I was in college as an undergraduate. My interest was not primarily teaching Spanish, but as time passed by, I realized that I became more interested on this, so I decided to do my masters on Teaching Spanish as a foreign language. I have lived in this country for more than 28 years and I recently moved to CA from Boston a year ago, with my family. I am currently working as an independent as a travel agent, but would like to continue doing what I like most, teaching and having my own business.

As a teacher one of my best qualities I have is patience and persistence. Since for me teaching a language is teaching the culture as well, I tried to make the class interesting and practical. Learning a language is not something that can be acquired right away and that takes time, effort and patience, and many times people get discouraged in the process, so that is why I believe motivation plays a very important part of the process.

When I think about my own experience about learning a second language, I think about what I have experience in this country and how much I have gotten out of just by learning about another culture. I would like to give to this country something back for all the things that I have gotten so far and teaching my own language is a way that I think is the best way to do it. I strongly believe that learning a second language opens up our minds and challenges our ideals about the world that we live in.
