Born in Bogot?, Colombia. I have been teaching in different education scenarious. I hold a BA degree in languages: French, English, and Philology. A master degree of Linguistics gives me a strong background in the study and analysis of the language systems. My husband and I, we worked and published: "The Phonetics elements of Spanish language". We also have been researching on the Embera language and have published two books" "Embera language writing system" and "Embera tenses, aspects and modality" Now I am focused on the Phd in Education. My proposed dissertation is the creation of a Spanish learning program with a connection to the knowledge of Jesus Christ. I plan to integrate Spanish to all the different disciplines in a holistic view point of the world. The Biblical scriptures would be the content of the curriculum. It will be a joy for me to implement this method in total sumission to the word of God.
