    Background:


    My name is Alicia Lorenzo, and I am teaching Spanish 1 and 2 this year.  This is my third year at Paw Paw High School. After graduating from Lawrence High School, I got my Associates of Arts from Lake Michigan College, where I played two years of softball and a year of basketball. After LMC, I transferred to Grand Valley State University, where I graduated with a Bachelors of Arts in Spanish and mathematics. During my time at GVSU, I was a part of the Latin dance group, Sabrosísimo, where I performed various forms of latin dance (Salsa, Bachata, Merengue, Samba).


    During my lifetime I’ve also had the opportunity to visit many latin american countries including, Spain, Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala, and Colombia through exchanges, mission trips and volunteer teaching programs. I use my experience and travels as an important tool to help my students learn about and appreciate the world of Spanish.  

     
    I’m recently married to my wonderful husband, Jorge. We were blessed to welcome our first child, July 4th, 2016, our daughter, Analise! She's an amazing and beautiful addition to our family. We adore her. We also have one furbaby, our chihuahua, Cosmo. In my spare time I enjoy exercising, going outdoors, dancing, watching movies, and spending time with family and friends.

    Find me in the right wing hallway, room 416.
