Claudia Rocío Colville

Adjunct Instructor of Spanish, Colombia

Claudia Colville was born in Barranquilla, Colombia, and from an early age, she lived in Maicao La Guajira, where she finished her primary and secondary education. As a child and adolescent, she was able to see first-hand how a cultural and economic bridge of exchanges with Venezuela and the Caribbean Islands impacted everyday life in her town. Growing up in a place where multiculturalism was present provided her with a foundation and direction in what would later become one of her favorite themes that would inspire her to share her experiences with others in an educational setting. Claudia arrived in California 8 years ago, and the diversity of this state provided her with another amazing new challenge and opportunity to learn about other cultures. She formerly earned a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Autonoma del Caribe University in Barranquilla, Colombia. In May of 2020, she earned her master’s degree in Spanish Literature and Culture from CSUN, and before transferring to CSUN, she received her Associate Degree in Arts in Spanish from Antelope Valley College. She has a great passion to share what she has learned and motivating students by weaving language and cultural competencies through unique real-world experiences. Claudia gained a great deal of experience during the 18 years of working in the Colombian financial industry. One of the great privileges she has had is not only to teach about good financial habits and everything related to capital investment but also continuing with her passion of teaching the Spanish language and working on Interpretation/ Translation for an agency that provides social, behavioral, and medical health-related services. In her spare time she loves to paint, dance, and along with her daughter, travel to explore and learn of new cultures, beliefs, traditions, and customs
