Senora Galetto

Growing up on Maui, in an English speaking household, Senora Galetto had very minimal exposure to foreign language until her first Spanish class in middle school.  She was hooked ever since!  Becoming fluent while studying abroad at the University of Granada in Spain, Senora Galetto continued on to receive a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish through the University of Hawaii in 2006. Presently she speaks Spanish everyday at home, and finds it immensely satisfying to watch her bilingual children grow up so confident in both languages!  Senora Galetto finds it an honor and privilege to come full circle and share her love of Spanish by teaching a new generation of Carden Middle schoolers.
