Stories of UNCW Spanish Alumni


Ava Dearing, Spanish BA with teaching licensure, Class of 2020

Why did you study Spanish?

I always wanted to be a teacher and fell in love with Spanish language and cultures in high school. Becoming a Spanish teacher has been the biggest dream of mine since I can remember!

How do you use Spanish now?

I am a Pre-K - 5 Spanish teacher at Thales Academy in Holly Springs, and spend my afternoons teaching Spanish 1 courses at the Thales JR/HS campus in Apex!
