Andrés was born and raised in Madrid, the capital of Spain. Most recently, he has shared pictures of his home with the kindergarten students he is teaching.
Andres’ brings much experience and expertise to our school. He is a primary education teacher with a foreign language teaching specialization and a special education degree as well.. He has a Masters Degree in school counseling and is fluent in Spanish Sign Language. He lived in Norway for a semester as part of a college exchange program and during that time he did an internship in a Norwegian school.
Arriving just a few months ago, he’s been settling into his new home in Summit County and has already begun exploring the area. He loves nature and hiking which was one of the main reasons he chose Colorado. Andres is passionate about drawing and sketching and he is quite often seen drawing for his students as he helps them to understand the concepts he is teaching in Spanish. When he’s not in the classroom, he is keeping a sketch diary of his time in the United States and he loves reading!! He’s hoping to read more books that are written in English in the upcoming year.
While Andres talents are many, he admits that he has never learned to ski, barely knows how to ice skate, and has NEVER, EVER, driven in the snow. It won’t be long, Andres!!
