Degrees and Certifications:

Elizabeth Sevilla

I have been fascinated with Spanish since third grade.  In high school, I completed four years of Spanish then lived in Colombia, South America for three months as an exchange student.  I became fluent after the first month, speaking and dreaming in Spanish.  I returned to the States and studied art and Spanish in college.  I graduated with a teaching certificate in both.  In 1991 I became a missionary to Honduras, Central America, where I lived for five years.  I then returned to the States and married a Honduran.  Although we are now divorced, I have two children who are proud to be half Honduran.

I have spent time in Guatemala, Honduras, Costa Rica, Colombia, Ecuador, and Chile.  I am passionate about Spanish and Spanish speakers.


I graduated from Vestavia Hills High School in 1982.

I have a B.A. from the University of Montevallo and a Master's degree from U.A.B.

I am certified to teach Spanish, Art, and ESL.
