Hello students and parents! Welcome to all my Spanish classes. I'm from Colombia, South America. I came to the U.S. as a high school exchange student with very little knowledge of English, similar to my beginning Spanish classes. The risk paid off and after completing my exchange program, I took a risk and decided to pursue a degree in Business Economics at Bethany College, Lindsborg, KS. After many years in the business world I'm now a teacher of my mother language and I could not be more honored to share it with my community in Blue Springs.
I married my college sweetheart. Mark is now retired after teaching Science and coaching futbol in the Kansas City area. We have two wonderful adult children Nicolas and Isabella who make us feel blessed every day.
My goal for my students as citizens of the 21st century is to expand on their own perspectives to understand that of others, through language and culture. My hope for them is to apply and find benefit in learning Spanish for future personal endeavors, travel and business pursuits.
