Where are they Wednesdays: Stories of UNCW Spanish Alumni

Ellie Schott - Class of 2013, Spanish BA with licensure; Class of 2016, Spanish MA

Why did you study Spanish?

Spanish was my passion from a young age and when I got to UNCW I was delighted by the quality of the course offerings and the professors in the department.

How do you use Spanish now?

I work at the Friends School of Wilmington, teaching Spanish pre‐K thru 8th grade. This is my fourth year at FSW. In the past, I have used my Spanish to connect with the residents of Greenville Village, the neighborhood adjacent to FSW. I would love to continue to find ways to use my Spanish outside of school and encourage my students to do the same.
