Angela Padron is originally from Freehold, New Jersey where she grew up in a bicultural household. She had the best of both worlds learning about her mother’s English heritage and her father’s Dominican culture. After she earned a B.A. in Art from Thomas Edison State College, Angela became a teacher.
During the summers, Angela worked with children of migrant workers and developed an interest in bilingual and ESL education. She then taught as a bilingual/ESL/Spanish teacher for several years before moving to sunny South Florida in 2002. Angela continued to teach before becoming a freelance writer and developmental editor in 2007 and a mom in 2008. Her credits include work on Descubre el español and Spotlight on English for Santillana USA. Angela also writes and illustrates children's books and educational material, including illustrating for McGraw-Hill, Core Knowledge, and Free Spirit Press.
When she’s not busy writing and illustrating, Angela works as an adjunct professor teaching ESL and Art courses. She holds three advanced degrees including a M.A. in Bilingual Education from Kean University, an Ed.S. in Reading Education from Nova Southeastern University, and an M.F.A in Illustration from Academy of Art University in San Francisco. In her free time, Angela loves to create Art and relax at the beach while sipping on a fruit smoothie.
As enthusiasts of the Spanish language and Hispanic Culture, this month we will be exploring the Spanish-speaking world: its people, its cities, its regions, and its cultures. Join us as we explore with Español Santillana.
