Overview

A native of Chattanooga, TN, Andrew developed an interest in Spanish while in high school. He completed his BA in Spanish in 2009 at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, and came to Charlotte shortly thereafter to begin his MA in the Translating and Translation Studies track of the Spanish program. After graduating and spending a year as a post-graduate fellow at UNCC, he accepted a job teaching high school, a continuously fascinating endeavor.  He has had the good fortune to visit Mexico, Spain and Peru and hopes to spend many more years teaching the Spanish language.
