Class:2019 / Fellow

Elena was born in Tampico, a city by the Gulf of Mexico. She loves seafood, traveling, connecting with people, and thinking about where life will take her next. She has resided in Mexico City, Cancun, and Chicago. Elena finally moved to DC in August 2019 because she loves the international environment that only DC offers. She has taught different subjects, including English as a second language in Tampico and San Salvador because helping others learn is one of the most fulfilling and rewarding experiences she has ever had. Teaching Spanish at GLN is a priceless opportunity to share her culture through her language while also connecting with her new community! Elena hopes to contribute to GLN’s mission and help her students learn her language and her culture but also how it interacts with other languages and cultures so we all can better understand where we come from, who we are, and where we could go.
