Comillas Academy Teacher Profile - Antonio Calvo
Antonio Calvo obtained his Bachelor of Arts degree and teaching certificate from the Universidad de Granada. He also completed his Master’s degree in the Teaching of Spanish as a Foreign Language at the Universidad Antonio de Nebrija in Madrid. While still studying in Granada, Antonio collaborated with the Spanish language school Carmen de los Gatos, where he taught Spanish to foreign students and organized cultural enrichment activities. In 1994, Antonio moved to New York City, where he worked as a Spanish teacher at the Grace Church School, an independent school located in Manhattan. During his stay in New York City, Antonio attended Bank Street College of Education and Instituto Cervantes. Antonio also completed the Interschool Teaching Fellows Program, an intensive one-year pedagogical training program. After six years residing in New York City, Antonio returned to Spain. There, he organized and lead the Spanish for Foreigners Program, and worked as a Spanish teacher in the Cultural Center La Nucia, in Alicante, Spain. In 2006 Antonio, his wife and two kids returned to the United States to teach at the William Penn Charter School, the oldest Quaker school in the world. There, Antonio Calvo has supported and cooperated in the organization of educational trips both within the United States and abroad. We couldn’t be more excited to have Antonio as part of our Comillas Academy faculty this year!
