Spanish: Bilingualism,/Multilingualism

From a very early age I have been interested in languages and how they work. After getting a bilingual degree in Business Administration in Medellín, Colombia, I decided to pursue a career as an educator and became an English teacher. Five years later I started my first master’s program at GMU in Linguistics and I worked as an ESL teacher for ten years at NVCC. A few years later, I earned a second master in Foreign Languages with a concentration in Spanish/Bilingual-Multicultural Education also at GMU, and in 2021 I finished my third one in Spanish Culture and Language at La Universidad Pontificia de Salamanca in Spain. I currently work for Arlington county in an immersion school and at GMU. I believe life is an endless learning journey and I enjoy and appreciate every single moment I spend with all my students. I have a passion for teaching, and I do believe that the future of our education is in two languages.
