My name is Silvia Vazquez Paramio and I am a Spanish Instructor at Saddleback College and at MiraCosta College. I was born and raised in Madrid, Spain my sweet home town. I came to California in 2005 to study a post-degree at UCSD. I have a B.A. in Communication and Journalism from the University of Madrid, a Masters in Spanish Linguistics from the University of Jaen and a PhD in Business by the University of Madrid.
In my free time I enjoy various sports activities such as racquetball and skiing. I like to read about astronomy, science and Spanish literature.
