Meet My Blog // Les presento mi blog
I created this blog in December of 2011 as a place to collect my thoughts, discoveries, and resources on all things Spanish. At that time I was in my second year of teaching private Spanish lessons part-time and staying at home with my kids full-time. My husband and I were living in my parents' basement (which is bigger than the place we currently live) so I could stay home with the kids while he worked full time and went back to school full time. Needless to say, becoming new parents, going back to school and living with my parents all made for an eventful life--the perfect time to start blogging, right? I love this blog because it is my little corner of the internet to meet and share with people around the world who love speaking and learning Spanish too.
Meet Me // Les presento yo
Majoring in Spanish and English in college, I had intentions of becoming an English or Spanish professor, secretly hoping I would really end up being an author of children's literature. Even better: I got the best job as a Spanish interpreter at a local Early Childhood Center where I worked with the most amazing staff of people dedicated to educating and nurturing children and families. Working there enabled me to meet so many amazing Spanish-speaking families. I also learned so many invaluable lessons about education and early childhood development. My first "real job" provided the perfect segue into my life today.
