Ms. Gretell Lara

My name is Gretell Lara and I am one of the Spanish teachers at SSS. I came to the United States in September of 2019 through Participate Learning, a global exchange program for foreign teachers. I have earned two bachelor degrees in Colombia: one in English Language Teaching and one in International Finance and Business Administration, both awarded by the University of Cordoba, as well as a Specialization degree in English Language Teaching awarded by the Pontifitian Bolivarian University in Colombia. I completed the first year of my Master's degree in English Language Teaching but then decided to pursue one of my biggest dreams: living in the U.S. 

I have been a teacher for 7 years, and I have taught English as a Second Language in Elementary, Middle and High School in Colombia. Before coming to the U.S., I was also working as an English Professor at the same university that awarded my bachelor degrees. 

As a cultural ambassador in SSS I attempt to promote international-mindedness in my classes by exposing my students to cultural content and traditions from Hispanic countries. I strongly believe that awareness of other cultures develops a more tolerant and embracing society.
