Stories of UNCW Spanish Alumni


Elisa Wallace Coppede
Class of 2003, Spanish BA 


Why did you study Spanish?

Being half Peruvian, I have always loved the Spanish language. I wanted to further immerse myself in the academic studies or the language while at UNCW. I truly enjoyed my Spanish studies while at UNCW! Especially learning more about film featuring female Spanish / Latina directors!

How do you use Spanish now?

I am a 7th grade English teacher at a Title One school in Charlotte, NC. Most of my students and their families are Latin, therefore my Spanish comes to play daily!
