Did you know Mrs. Mariela Andrade can speak English, Spanish, German, Portuguese and is learning Mandarin? This is Mrs. Andrade’s fourth year teaching Spanish at Hylton. She currently sponsors the Spanish Honor Society and the Muslim Student Association. Before working at Hylton, Mrs. Andrade was an English as a Foreign Language (EFL) teacher.

Mrs. Andrade is from Santiago, Chile. She didn’t always want to be a teacher, but her life took her towards it. She started off as an English to German translator. People started to ask her to tutor them and she realized just how much she enjoyed it. She next did an exchange to Chicago; there she privately tutored kids. Mrs. Andrade had an opportunity to come to the states to teach Spanish, which she had never taught before. As she started teaching, her favorite part of the experience was being with students and answering their questions.

Outside of teaching, Mrs. Andrade loves reading and playing with her two dogs and three cats. Her favorite food is eggplant lasagna. When asked what her favorite thing about Hylton is, she shared that she likes extracurricular activities because they allow her to have a bond with the students. Hearing this from her, it’s easy to see why her previous students described her as caring and upbeat. Senior Melanie Revollo who previously had Mrs. Andrade, said “Her kindness and her silliness allow you to be comfortable in and out of class.” This gives you an insight to Mrs. Andrade’s personality and what she contributes to the Hylton community.
