My name is Lorena Iglesias, I am 29 years old and I was born in Valledupar, a small town in the north of Colombia, but I have lived in Bogotá for almost 20 years. I have a BA and a Master's degree in Literature, the first from Universidad Nacional de Colombia, and the second from Universidad de los Andes. I worked for two years as a copy editor for the department of humanities in my first Alma Mater, and I have worked as a teacher since 2010, both in high school and in college. I enjoy reading, of course, learning languages, movies, and all sorts of craft work. In terms of sports, I'm usually a watcher, but I am interested in becoming more active and participating in some.

I am looking forward to share my cultural background and be supportive of the students learning process as well as our time together at Spanish House.
