Madelyne Lopez grew up in Chicago, Illinois to Puerto Rican parents. Her parents decided to move back to Puerto Rico where she attended High School and obtained her degree in English Language Arts. Madelyne is certified to teach in the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, state of Hawaii and Washington, in three content areas: English, ELL and Spanish. Her passion for teaching started upon moving to her parents hometown where her classmates would turn to her for help with their English homework. Madelyne later moved to Honolulu, Hawaii in 2014 due to her husband being in the Military. There she found a new passion, World Languages. Even though she was an English Teacher, the increasing need for Spanish teachers in the island of Hawaii, she was given the opportunity to teach Spanish due to her experience in teaching English as a Second Language and being a native speaker. Madelyne fell in love with the language which also helped her get in touch with her roots and see the Hispanic/Latino culture in a whole new light. Her purpose is for students to not only learn a whole new language but to create a conscience into the differences in culture and language between the Spanish speaking countries.
