Sr. Arévalo

Algunos apuntes sobre mí

Desocupado lector,

My name is Paco, but my students know me by Sr. Arévalo. Nevertheless, my complete name is Francisco Arévalo Visiedo; first last name after my father, second one after my mother. I am from Spain, which would explain my funny accent in English. 

I have a great family. My wife Lisa is from California. She is very talented with languages and a nerd (yes, she is). In addition, we have three wonderful kids: Teresa, Dani, and Paquito (not taquito).

My academic background is as follows: I hold a Bachelor in Spanish Language and Literature (this would be my major), my minor is in Italian. We don't have these distinctions between major and minor in Spain, but I just want you to understand my academic background. The California Commission on Teacher Credentialing issued me a bachelor and a master degree based on my coursework in Spain and Italy. Also, I have a master in Cross-cultural Education that I completed with National University. 

By the way, my university in Spain is La Universidad de Valencia, but I spent two years in Italy, too. The first year I studied at the University of Bari (la Puglia) and, for my second year, I was in a student teaching program in Reggio Calabria, (on the tip of the boot of Southern Italy facing Sicily) where I met my wife Lisa, who was teaching English. 

I know this is getting too long ... I love reading (boring!!!!!!!!!), spending time with my family at home or anywhere, fishing (just kidding!), spending time at the beach (we go to Davenport Landing), jogging, making paellas, visiting my family in Spain, climbing the Everest, and visiting Mars. I think this will suffice!
