Grace Sotomayor grew up speaking both Spanish and English in the home. Born on the island of Puerto Rico where her family origins begin, she moved to the States at a young age where her education was in English while her home life embraced the Spanish language as a means of communication. Most of her formative years were spent here in the Savannah area where she would attend Armstrong Atlantic State University and receive her undergrad in Spanish with a minor in French. Grace has studied abroad in Spain and France. She also taught Spanish and English in the country of Poland for nearly 2 and a half years while learning the Polish language. Upon returning to the States, Grace accepted a Spanish teaching position for both elementary and middle school at Hancock Day School where she would enjoy a positive teaching experience for 2 years. Wanting to return to her love for all things international, she gladly accepted a position at St. Andrew’s where there is a strong curriculum for global citizenship as well as global competency. In her spare time, Grace loves to volunteer in the community, meet people from other countries, travel, have a cup of tea, and write about her adventures and revelations.
