My name is Monica Salazar Sanchez. I am working with kinder (Sra. Fages) and First grade (Sra. King). I was born and raised in Santiago de Cali, Colombia, where I studied English and French. I am shy at the beginning but once you get to know me, you will see I have a fun side. I live with my parents and I have two older brothers. We are a very close family and we enjoy spending time together. I like different kinds of music, watching films, reading, hiking and taking pictures. I love languages and differentcultures. I am looking forward to improving my language skills and learning more about the American culture and the education system of a Spanish school like ISLA. I cannot wait to share my language and culture with the students at ISLA. I am staying at the Torans for the first half of the year. I can best be reached by phone/text at 612-998-5668 or
