about me

My name is Yoly Orrego. I am originally from Colombia (South America), nationalized in the United States. I am married, and I have a 13 year old daughter. In Colombia, I studied Law and Political Science. Here in the U.S., I completed a Master's Degree in Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language. I am currently finishing The Georgia Teacher Academy for Preparation and Pedagogy at Metropolitan Regional Educational Services Agency. I have taught Spanish for over 10 years, and this is my second year at the International Charter School of Atlanta. Teaching for me is a pleasure; Within my teaching philosophy, I seek to reach each of my students to help them achieve their goals. I have big expectations for all my students. In my free time, I like to walk in the park, watch the History Channel and talk on the phone with my family.
