¡Hola! I am Luz Shriner and am a Spanish Teacher. I am from Peru, living in the States for over 26 years. My nickname since I was a little girl has been Lucy, a name I share with many dogs in the USA. I hold a Master of Education degree from the University of Kansas (We have a great basketball team), and a second Master’s degree in Romance Languages and Literature, with an emphasis on Spanish and proficiency in French, at the University of Missouri (We have a great football team). I am very tech-savvy, love teaching reading, traveling, working out and watching sports. My favorite teams are the Kansas City Chiefs, the Royals, the University of Kansas basketball team and the Peruvian soccer team. I lived in the Midwest, East Coast and in the West.
Thanks, Luz S.!
