I teach a writing workshop in Spanish for people interested in writing narratives, stories, and poetry in Spanish. I have a published book, extensive experience as a teacher, and a master's degree in Creative Writing in Spanish.
I'm a writer, my work method is special and fun for children and because it is based on writing and reading stories in Spanish. Students learn easily in small groups, maximum of 5 people. I have three and a half years of experience as a teacher of Creative Writing in Spanish at UTEP with excellent results.
