Do you speak more than one language? How did you learn the additional languages?
Before I became a reading specialist, before I earned by degree in literacy, I wanted to be a Spanish teacher. I had a wonderful Spanish teacher in both high school (Ms. Napalitano) and college (that was the ONLY thing I liked about Concordia College). I then transferred to Mercy College for both my Bachelors and Master’s Degree.
UNFORTUNATELY Mercy College no longer had Spanish as a major, so my plans changed. I wonder how different my life would have been if I had majored in Spanish. As I listen to my son snoring, I thank God for guiding my in the right path. Another path may have never led me to my amazing little man.
Now, I wish I could have learn Italian to pass onto my so…perhaps one day I will learn it. I’m only 37 and still have plenty to accomplish in life.
