Letter from the Future

April 12, 2023

Dear former me,

It seems like only yesterday, I was at UP. It was the spring term, 2023.

So much has happened since then, and it has only been 10 years since that date. After finishing the three plus one program at UP, I graduated with a bachelors in Secondary Education and Spanish, a minor in Philosophy, and got a masters in Education with an English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) endorsement. I then ended up working in the David Douglas School District for four years focusing on teaching spanish to complete the TEACH grant program that I am a part of. After finishing the four years, me and my wife decided to leave the United States and have moved to Oslo, Norway, where we have been located the past 4 years. I decided to get a master’s degree in Spanish language and literature, and at this stage, i have been interested in going to get a doctorate in Education. I have not decided on what field to focus on yet, but I do know I have enjoyed teaching high school all of these years. I definitely gravitate more towards teaching older students, and I have plans to eventually be able to teach in a University. I also ended up learning two more languages, Norwegian and Japanese (I know, a fun combination), and it has been a blast to be able to talk with multiple people from various other cultures.

Well, won’t spoil anymore. See you.

  1. Some great aspirations – an advanced degree and moving to Oslo!
    Adding Norwegian and Japanese to your languages. I’m guessing there’s not much overlap among them. So you have your work cut out for you.
