My name is Zulema Silva. I was born and raised in Ecuador. I earned my bachelor’s degree in Education (with concentration in Linguistics) in 1995 and my Master of Arts (Spanish/ Hispanic Literature) from New Mexico State University in 2008.
I have been teaching Spanish since 2001 in North Carolina. I began teaching in the United States as an exchange Spanish teacher in the Guilford County Public School System.

NEW IMPORTANT DISTANCE LEARNING INFORMATION MARCH 2020!!!
During this school closure due to COVID-19 students will have notes and activities to look at and complete in CANVAS. I will provide students with modules that will represent the units we are covering.
