Hello Escuela Profesional Javeriana
My name is Cooper Wilson. I am the new conversation assistant. I am 27 years old. Currently, I am studying for a master's degree in teaching English and Spanish at New York University in Madrid. I am from Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA. My family has lived there since the 1860s (which is a long time for the US). Michigan is a state that looks like a hand in the north of the US. I lived in Spain in 2011-2012 and I am very excited to be back. In college, I studied Spanish and Japanese. In the past, I have worked as a Spanish-English medical interpreter, a paralegal, and many jobs related to education. I am a proud uncle with a two-year old nephew. I’m interested in teaching languages for professional application, so I am really excited to work at a professional school! Outside of work, I like theater, love to cook (because I love eat), and like dancing. I’m looking forward to getting to know all the faculty, staff, and students of the Escuela Profesional Javeriana!
