Melinda has been teaching English abroad since 2010. She first moved to Seoul, South Korea to teach at a private English school. After working in Seoul for a year, Melinda decided to make the leap to Europe. She studied in Barcelona during univesity and fell in love with Spain, so it was a natural choice to return. Melinda is in her second year as an English teaching assistant at a primary school in La Latina.
Melinda is from Texas, but also lived in Massachusetts and Chicago as a child. She studied broadcast journalism and Spanish at the University of Texas at Austin. Before she started teaching, Melinda worked for two years as a reporter for a publishing company in Austin, Texas.
News is one of Melinda’s biggest interests. She’s really happy to work with Club LTL because it gives her the opportunity to combine her love of news and discussion with teaching English. Besides news, Melinda also loves traveling. She’s been to many countries in Europe, Asia and North America and would like to visit South America one day. Her favorite Spanish foods are tortilla, salmorejo, caldo Gallego, Manchego cheese and embutidos. She has one sister who is also an English teacher and two parents in Texas that she misses very much!
