I have two M.A. in Hispanic Linguistics, one from New Mexico State University and one from Penn State University. Right now I’m a PhD candidate in the Department of Education, Theory and Policy in the College of Education. I’ve been an instructor of Spanish here in Penn State for almost 8 years. At Penn State I have taught Span 001,002,003, 100, and 300w. In my free time I enjoy watching and playing soccer with my friends and spending time with my family.
