Saying Goodbye to Patricia Pinzón, Spanish Teacher

Our beloved Spanish teacher, Patricia Pinzón, is moving back to Colombia on June 20th. Her husband was offered a teaching position at an international elementary school, so they have decided to return to Patricia's home. Her family is so happy! They have missed her during her 1.5 years in the USA. She has learned so much at Greenspire and is leaving with a heavy heart. We will miss her sweet disposition.
