Miguel Ortega

I am Miguel Ortega and I was born in Spain. When I was a child, I spent time in Mave, a small town in north of Spain. When I turned 18, I went to Valladolid to earn my Master’s Degree in History and teaching. After I finished my degree I went to study Social Anthropology in Granada in south of Spain.

After two years in Granada and many enriching experiences, I returned to Mave and worked on an art inventory for the government of the region of Castilla y Leon, as well as a coordinator of a project in Fundacion Santa Maria La Real in the marketing – communication department.

I began my teaching career in Denver as an elementary teacher.

I enjoy reading books, riding my bike, climbing and mountaineering in the beautiful mountains of Colorado. I’ve reached the top of some, but not all!, of the fourteeners. It seems like I just arrived, but this is my fifth year here. I am very excited to grow as a person and as a professional, and to be able to share my knowledge and experience with all of you!
