Mr. Fredy Parra
Welcome to Mr. Parra’s Class
The 2020-2021 school year is my fifth-year teaching at CEMS. I’m the ESL and Spanish teacher and I am so excited to get to know each one of my new students and their family.
I am from Bogotá, Colombia’s capital city. I received my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Modern Languages (Spanish, English, French) from Universidad Libre and my Master of English Language Teaching Autonomous Learning Environments from Universidad la Sabana, Colombia.
I discovered my love for languages in middle school and studied both English and French throughout high school and college. After my undergraduate studies, I studied abroad in London, UK to find a deeper connection between language and culture. Having the opportunity to interact with so many different cultures allows me to incorporate that experience into my classes.
I have a perfect wife, Angelica and two beautiful babies, Abby and Martin. We all love spending time together, singing, dancing and travelling.
My goal in the classroom is for every student to be successful! I work hard everyday to see my students leaving my classroom with something new in their minds, and most importantly, with a big, wide smile
