About la_hispanofila

I am a Spanish teacher, and have also worked extensively in travel abroad, primarily in Spain and Italy, both organizing and leading trips for high school and middle school students. I studied for my Master's in Spanish through Middlebury in Madrid, Spain, my home base for 2 years.  Prior to earning my Master's degree, I studied abroad at the University of Saint Andrew's in Scotland and in Florence, Italy via a scholarship through the College of William & Mary, where I attended college. I am a lover of languages and travel, taking every opportunity to learn about the countries I visit, whether through language courses or cultural tours. I participated in a Human Rights expedition through Reality Tours, in Oaxaca, Mexico to learn about the struggles of the indigenous populations in that region, and have taken Spanish language and culture courses for teachers in Salamanca and at the University of Granada in Spain. In addition to Spanish and Italian, I would love to add Portuguese and Catalan to my languages. For the time being, however, I remain concentrated on improving my fluency in Spanish and learning more about the Spanish-speaking countries of the world. Aside from Spain, I have spent time in Mexico, Guatemala and Buenos Aires, Argentina, all of which were fascinating, eye-opening experiences. Please enjoy reading about my adventures documented in this blog!
