Spanish Immersion Assistant, Maya Sparks

Where did you grow up?
I grew up in Wallingford and I attended Green Lake Elementary School, just down the street. I love living and working in the same neighborhood because I love feeling part of a community.

Who is your family? 
My family consists of my Dad, Michael, my mom, Carol (who volunteers at McDonald), my
sister, Kiri and my cat Matilda.

What are your hobbies?
My hobbies include yoga, cooking, traveling and riding my bike (I did STP twice)!

What is your language background and education? 
I love learning languages and traveling abroad. I lived in Spain for five
years and also did a Human Rights study abroad course in Guatemala during
my time at the University of Washington where I got my bachelor's in
Spanish Studies and Human Rights.

What are your aspirations for the future?
I am currently learning Arabic and have traveled three times to Morocco. I have worked with kids for the past seven years and I hope to get a Master's in Teaching ESL and Spanish in the future.
