Lourdes received a B.A. in Spanish with an emphasis in language and culture from California State University, Northridge, where she also earned a teaching credential. She went on to teach high school Spanish for nine years in Los Angeles and the San Fernando Valley. She taught both native speakers and students new to the Spanish language. One of the highlights of teaching was making the foreign language learning experience natural, engaging and exciting.
Lourdes has three young children, Juliana, Jonathan, and Olivia. She loves spending time with them, and daily life with them is one of her greatest joys. Lourdes also enjoys interpreting and translating. She is so excited to be part of the iLEAD team.
