Spanish Teacher 2017-Present
My name is James Clark. I graduated from St. Thomas University with a B.A. in Theology and philosophy(Double major) with a minor in psychology. I went on to study at St. John’s up in Collegeville and received a Master’s certificate(18 graduate credits in Theology). I love studying about the life of Christ and also am a big fan of Greek philosophy. I was immersed in Spanish at an early age, have traveled to Mexico 14 times, I also traveled to Caracas, Venezuela, Colombia, La Isla de Granada, and I lived in Miami for six months. I took two years of Spanish at St. Thomas University, volunteered for the Hispanic outreach program while in my Master’s studies at St. John’s, and I lived in Ecuador for 9 years. All those experiences combined have given me a near native level of Spanish.
In my personal life, I put the same passion and enthusiasm into the sports I play, as I did with my academic studies. I am a two time all American in Folk Style wrestling, a U.S. Open free style wrestling champion, and I took a silver medal in the World Brazilian Jiu Jitsu championships.
