Teacher & Content Creator
Señor Myron, in his sophomore year of high school, began studying Spanish from a cassette tape. In 2016, he was challenged to take his Spanish education to the next level. He discovered a fun and interactive way to learn Spanish. Utilizing social media for artificial immersion. In 2021, Señor Myron with much dedication reached an intermediate level of fluency. He then felt the responsibility to share the valuable information he had gained. By teaching children and creating educational content. Yearning to see a shift in the American culture, wanting language learning to no longer be foreign. Hoping to make an impact with the youth (the leaders of the future). This has been the motivation that drives Señor Myron until this day.
