hi! I was born in Cordoba, Spain, but my family moved to Barcelona when I was 9, so I learned some Catalan with my friends (thanks to Franco, Catalan was prohibited in schools). When I was 25 I moved to the United States because I needed a change in my life. I lived in Florida 5 years and then I moved to San Francisco, where I've been since then. I graduated from SFSU in Spanish literature and went to UC Davis to do my PhD. I've been teaching Spanish Language and Literature for the past 15 years (and I still love it).
