Tamara Robson (She/Her)

My name is Tamara and I come from Slovenia, a small country in Europe.

I first started learning Spanish in high school and I fell in love with it. I was lucky enough to visit Spain every year until I graduated. Before starting law school I felt like I needed to go back to Spain, so I returned to attend summer school.  I taught Spanish class for several years during my college years and now I’m very excited to start teaching again.

I love traveling and learning new languages and in my free time I love reading and being outside.


Mariana Mora (she/her)

Mariana is a multi-disciplinary artist who was born in Colombia and grew up in Florida. After getting her Bachelor's in Visual Art and Emerging Media Management, she moved to Portland where she has spent her time working as an artist and graphic designer. Leading art workshops she has found a passion for teaching and hopes to share her first language and love for art with new generations of Spanish speakers.

Latisha Jensen

Latisha first started taking Spanish classes in middle school and continued taking it all the way through university. She studied abroad in Granada, Spain and a few years after college she went back to Spain to teach English and absolutely loved her time teaching and working with youth. Growing up, she had some of the best teachers and professors in college which further fueled her passion for Spanish language and culture, so she's thrilled to have the opportunity to give back and share her love of the language through Adventures in Spanish.
