Sra gonzalez

5th grade Spanish teacher

My name is Nilva Gonzalez. I was born and raised in Gran Canaria, Canary Islands, Spain. These beautiful, little islands are off the west coast of Africa, if you want to check them on the map! As an islander, I am a sea lover, so going to the beach will always be my perfect getaway. I came to Georgia in 2014. I live in Duluth with my husband (Samir) and my boy/girl twins (Nael and Nora) who are 16 months old. As you can imagine, they keep me busy all the time but, when I get some free time, I like to read, go running and listen to music. Friends are a very important part of my life as well, and I love teaching Spanish and sharing my culture with others!

I hold a Bachelor’s of Arts with a major in Foreign Language and Translation. In Spain, I also completed my teaching certification to all levels, and last year I got my Master’s Degree in Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language at International University of Valencia (Spain).

Looking forward to a great year!
