Where are they Wednesdays: Stories of UNCW Spanish Alumni

Rachel Kincaid Class of 2002, Spanish BA with Teaching Licensure

Why did you study Spanish?

I have loved studying Spanish and the history, linguistics and practical application my whole life.

How do you use Spanish now?

I have worked in the field of Montessori education for 15 years, and at this time I am developing a Spanish language Montessori diploma course; I edit the monthly magazine El Heraldo Montessori and will be establishing professional development opportunities for Montessori teachers in Spanish-speaking areas next. I helped establish a bilingual Montessori preschool in Cary, NC, where children hear both Spanish and English by native speakers throughout their day.
