Hello. My name is Silvina. I’ve been living in San Telmo for the past eighteen years. I also studied in San Telmo at the Catholic University Santo Tomás de Aquino located in 5 de Julio street corner with Venezuela. I strongly suggest you come and visit San Telmo as it’s such a lovely place! I enjoy teaching spanish as a second language and gain great satisfaction from seeing my students learning different ways of thinking about grammatical notions. The things I most enjoy about my job are meeting people from all over the world, developing new materials for use in the classroom and planning new courses. Outside work, I dance tango and I love to enjoy the city life; visiting art galleries, eating at new restaurants.  What else about me? I work as a volunteer 3 hours per week. I practice Fair Trade principles and I pay my taxes.

You are invited to be part of my classroom.

Being organic

I deeply appreciate Alfred North Whitehead’s Philosophy of Organism: Organic Philosophy. But when I say organic I just mean I’m a woman who practices Fair Trade principles. Read more below.
