Spanish Programs and Study Abroad Coordinator


Silvia is from the land of the Maya, inherited from her Mayan ancestors. She studied business management at Universidad Marista in Mérida. Soon after she graduated, she had the chance to attend Ohio University in the United States where she obtained her master’s degree in language education and literature. Based on her experiences teaching Spanish, Silvia has enriched her world vision through meeting people from many different parts of the world. Her passion is teaching and she especially loves to share her traditions through language. Silvia’s work with Habla has become an opportunity to make connections with diverse people and to share her cultural experiences with others.
