Stories of UNCW Spanish Alumni


Holly Marshburn

Class of 1996, Spanish BA with teaching licensure


Why did you study Spanish?

I love languages and the program at UNCW is wonderful.

How do you use Spanish now?

I'm now teaching elementary school at an international school in Moscow, Russia. Studying another language and culture at UNCW set me on this amazing path of an international life. I've gone on to earn my MA in TESOL and my doctorate instructional technology. I'm enjoying a fitness retreat for fall break in Alanya, Turkey with a group of Russian women as I write this message. In 1996 I would never have imagined this is where I would be 20 some years later.
