Javier Morganti

Javier A. Morganti
From Buenos Aires, Argentina

Javier A. Morganti's passion for teaching Spanish led him to establish The Art of Spanish Institute LLC in 2004. He has a total of 16 years of experience in Denver teaching Spanish to both adults and kids. After teaching in several language schools in Denver, Colorado and earning his certificate in teaching Spanish as a Second Language (SSLT), he saw a unique opportunity to create the ultimate Spanish-language learning environment in Denver. His teaching methodology takes maximal advantage of world-class language-learning technologies and the best instructional practices.
 

In his native Argentina, he received a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration (U.B.A University of Buenos Aires), and then worked in marketing and administration for 7 years. Since coming to Colorado in 2001, he has gained wide experience teaching Spanish to English-speakers of all ages and backgrounds. He has  taught at schools both public and private, from elementary-, high school- up to university-level courses. Currently, he’s using his business background and experience with on-site corporate trainings to extend The Art of Spanish Institute methodology to corporate and institutional language-training programs.

 

When you meet Javier, you’ll see his lively passion for teaching and sharing his love of life. That spirit infuses the Art of Spanish Institute, creating a fun, friendly, and extremely powerful environment for learning. When he is not teaching, you’ll find him on the running paths around Washington Park and Cheesman Park, trail-running on the mountains, mountaing biking, photographing in the Rocky Mountains, backpacking or climbing his next 14er.

She has a total six years of classroom experience, improving methods of study that she acquired during her career. She developed a unique and passionate way to make learning fun and engaging for students of all ages and backgrounds. Cristina always finds the best way to keep her students interested and working with motivation, for she is in the idea that Spanish as a romantic language gives the poet more words to play with, like toys to a kid.

In 2014 she had the privilege to come to Colorado where she worked for the local school district on a small town on the northeast corner of the state, where she gained knowledge and experience with the education system in the United States. Cristina also volunteered for various activities such as ESL teacher and worked closely with WIDA testing.

She likes to cook and enjoy the taste of the traditional Mexican food. She also loves to experiment with new flavors. Her hobbies are camping, hiking, swimming and outdoor activities.

She hopes to make the journey of learning Spanish fun and exciting for all the students that study at The Art of Spanish Institute!
