Educational Background:
In 2005 Mrs. Llerena graduated from Clarion University with a BS in Spanish Education (K-12) and two minors: French and Latin American and Caribbean Studies. While attending Clarion, she was fortunate to have studied the Spanish language and Latin culture in Quito, Ecuador and French in Quebec, Canada.  Mrs. Llerena finds both experiences very valuable to her students because she is always sharing her cultural and linguistic experiences with them during class discussions.  
Mrs. Llerena returned to Clarion University to receive her M.Ed. in World Language Teaching in 2012. During this experience she was able to revisit Ecuador to study Andean Literature in Otavalo, as well as visit one of the Galapagos Islands.
Travel Experiences:
Mrs. Llerena loves to travel, especially to Spanish speaking countries!  In addition to her study abroad experiences in Ecuador, she has also traveled to Mexico, the Dominican Republic, Peru, Costa Rica, and Spain.
