Greetings! My name is Matt Gorenc, and I am the Language and Cultural Assistant this year at IES Galileo Galilei.
I was born and raised in Denver, Colorado, a major city in the West near the beautiful Rocky Mountains. Colorado is known for its outdoor activities and natural beauty. I hold Bachelor´s Degrees, cum laude, in Political Science and Spanish from Colorado State University and spent a semester falling in love with the Spanish language and culture in Buenos Aires.Prior to moving to Spain, I worked in progressive state politics in Denver and ran my own Starbucks and H&M stores.
I am excited to be in Spain because I love the culture, people, history, and all the touristic offerings (Spain has it all: beaches, the mountains, cities, towns, and an incredible history). In my free time, I enjoy spending time with friends, reading, skiing, hiking, and, most of all, travelling. I have greatly enjoyed meeting the great students and faculty at Galileo Galilei and look forward to a great year of sharing my passions of language and culture with my students!
