I am a 28 year old elementary school teacher. I am originally from Poland, and I lived there until I was five years old. To this day, Polish is the language that I speak with my parents and family. In addition, I would like to make it clear that I both speak Polish and can read and write it, and I have been doing so since the age of eleven. I have a bachelor's degree from the University of Dallas in Spanish, and I plan on starting post-graduate work in the field of linguistics in about a year from now. I have taught Spanish bilingual education for two out of my previous three years. Additionally, I have spent time living and volunteering abroad in Guatemala. I volunteered as a teacher's assistant for four and a half months, and I was in the country for five.
