About me, your teacher, Señora Heglar...
For my academic credentials, I have a high school diploma from Gateway Christian Schools, a Bachelor of Arts in both Spanish & International Studies from Graceland University, & a Master of Arts in Education from Union University. I am a member of the National Honors Society. In the traditional four-year timeline, I double-majored, double-minored, & graduated Summa Cum Laude with a 3.91 GPA in my undergraduate coursework. In my Masters of Arts in Education coursework, I graduated with a 4.0 GPA over the traditional 2 year timeline while teaching. My Masters' thesis was Language Learning & Life Impact. I hope to complete a professional doctorate degree someday.
For my language qualifications beyond my B.A. in Spanish, I lived in Cádiz, Spain, taking collegiate courses at La Universdidad de Cádiz & residing with a local host family for a semester. As a student translator, I traveled throughout the whole of the country of Nicaragua over three, separate trips equivalent to a month's time, personally seeing all borders, both the Honduran & Costa Rican borders, as well as both oceans, the Pacific & Gulf of Mexico. I traveled throughout Guatemala, serving as a translator for a university trip. Also, I lived in Callao, Peru as a volunteer with World Service Corps, working with under-privileged youth & serving in the churches there. While living in Peru, I traveled the country seeing & experiencing the Amazon Rainforest, the Andes Mountains, & one of the New Wonders of the World: Machu Picchu. In my professional career, I worked as a translator in both the healthcare & financial markets for over 8 years of combined experience prior to transitioning into education.
Personally, I am passionate about teaching & love waking up to go to school every day! I am a firm believer in southern hospitality, true honesty, & pure respect. I love Spanish, but also language as a whole; I hope to become a polyglot! I live for learning new things! Traveling is an adored hobby, though I have transitioned to more of a 'home body' now that I am married & a mom to a beautiful daughter. I will always call America the beautiful home. Food is a love language, and every breath is a gift!
Once more, welcome! I am excited to go on this journey of language, world exploration & learning with you!
