Biography

Dear readers! My name is Mar Andres Thomas, and I am a native of Spain. As a young woman I attended school in England, and later, in 1992 I came to the USA to marry my long time love of my life. Together we have a beautiful daughter going to college this Fall. I have a degree in Liberal Arts, and an MA in Spanish Linguistics. I love teaching Spanish, because it gives me the opportunity to observe how languages are acquired. My other passion is writing, creating teaching material, and traveling all over the world when time permits.
