Cecilia Torre 🇲🇽

Cecilia de la Torre, a México native, recently received her degree in Interior Design. Her love of history and art led her to document her life experiences on a website that portrays the history of her people in photographs and supporting narratives.

Spanish language and culture and the arts were always her favorite subjects. During her academic development she participated in spelling and writing competitions. She was also a member of a youth symphony that toured in Mexico, and she performed in smaller recitals. Cecilia just finished her certification as a Professor of ELE (Teaching Spanish as Foreing Language) from Cervantes Institute, Spain).

She has one year of classroom experience, improving methods of study that she acquired during her career. She developed a unique and passionate way to make learning fun and engaging for students of all ages and backgrounds. Cecilia always finds the best way to keep her students interested and working with motivation, for she is in the idea that Spanish as a romantic language gives the poet more words to play with, like toys to a kid!

 In her free time, she enjoys nature and being with animals, especially horses.

She is excited about sharing her knowledge and experience of Spanish language, culture, and literature with her students at The Art of Spanish Institute.

Elisa Quijano is from Maracaibo, Venezuela and a native Spanish speaker. She's an Architect and Historian with over 30 years of experience in different areas of education. A graduate from La Universidad del Zulia in Maracaibo, Venezuela, Elisa continued her relationship with the institution as Architectural History Professor, Editor of the School’s magazine, and full-time researcher. Later on, she was part of an independent publishing group with many books and articles under their belt, mostly focusing on local history, art, and architecture.

As the daughter of Cuban immigrants and grandchild of Spanish ones, Elisa understands the importance of cultural exchange. The diversity that shapes her family, as well as many others from Latin America, is one that she hopes to bring into her classes. 

Her love for art and history has taken her on many adventures around the world, as well as inspired her to dive into media that always expands her understanding and appreciation for these subjects. These are all experiences that she incorporates into her teachings, making the process of learning an integrated one.

Always writing and teaching in her native language, Elisa is excited to now share her love for Spanish and its cultural richness as a Denver resident here at The Art of Spanish Institute helping to develop her students’ personal and professional lives.
