Who is Eduardo Cabrera as an educator?

Hello! My journey started in Queretaro, Mexico. I was completing my degree in Law when I met a young redhead from the US that was there working as an expat. After a few months with her, it was obvious that we would end up marrying.  She convinced me to move to the US when her assignment ended, which was about 23 years ago.

Since I can’t practice Law in the US (the law system is different here), I began to teach Spanish, first at a University in Ohio, and after moving to Wisconsin, I began to teach at the High School Level.

Teaching at an inner city school is difficult, so my personal goal for the future is to find a way to reach students that are being influenced by the wrong element. It is especially gratifying when I can instill a love for foreign language learning and foreign culture with a student that has little or no experience outside of Milwaukee.

Here is a website that I often turn to when looking for a good resource for teaching foreign language.  It is operated by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages.

  1. Nice to meet you! Your background sounds very interesting. I always wished I was bilingual, so I am jealous of your diverse background. I am excited to work with you in the coming weeks.

  2. I can’t even begin to imagine how difficult it is teaching at an inner city school, kudos to you for sticking with it and changing lives, especially where lives need changing the most. A teachers job goes so much further than teaching a pronoun or math equation, we need to also save lives.
