My name is Guiomar Fages and I am very happy to be your child’s Kinder teacher this year. Originally from Barcelona (Spain), I first came to the US as an Amity in St. Cloud. I majored in English and German Linguistics back home. Later, I decided to pursue an M.A. in English as a Second Language and Spanish Linguistics and a PhD in Spanish at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. I taught English in Barcelona at the K-12 level. In the US I taught Spanish in elementary and High School as well as in college. I celebrate the chance to be able to share my country with my students and work towards a global community in our classroom. I am very excited to work at ISLA and its top IB Immersion program as it enables our students to become well-rounded global citizens. In my free time, I love to spend time with my family, cook and read. I love travelling and getting to know different cultures. We’re going to have a great school year !! İVa a ser un año fantástico!
