Patricia Acosta is from San Juan, Puerto Rico, where at age 8 she began to show her passion for education by teaching math to her (often unwilling) friends, classmates, neighbors and pets with the help of a little chalkboard and many, many, many coloring activity book pages. (Where was the Internet when one needed it!). Patricia earned a Masters of Arts in Journalism and Communications from the University of Georgia at Athens. She became an established author in Puerto Rico and in the United States and has written and edited textbooks and children’s books for various markets.
Patricia now lives in Miami, Florida, with her husband, her two children, and her adopted French Bulldog. And because she loves Spanish as much as she loves her Frenchy and her husband (in no particular order), she has set out on a mission to help all kids in the U.S. learn Spanish with programs like Descubre el español con Santillana (of which she is the Senior Editor) and through authentic Spanish literary and informative books and ebooks.
When not practicing traditional Japanese karate, Patricia can be found fighting the urge to eat the last chocolate-chip cookie in the jar. (Spoiler alert: The cookie always wins!).
"Books and movies are like apples and oranges. They both are fruit, but taste completely different."
