Hola, y bienvenido a español! My name is Melissa Pérez.  This is my second year teaching Spanish at HCA.  I am a native, born in Decatur, GA.  I have translated most of my life, from securities lawyers, banks, realtors, to even my in-laws.  I have a son, Marco in 5th grade and a daughter, Sofia in 7th grade. My husband, Hugo is from Bogotá, Colombia.  I am very excited to continue using immersion techniques to make your children bilingual before they know it!  I have included some wonderful websites where your children can practice what they have learned in a fun and easy to use format:
