Q&A with high school Spanish teacher Gee Santos
Guilherme (Gee) Santos, CAC’s high school Spanish teacher, moved to Henderson, Tennessee, from Brazil in 2011. He graduated from Freed-Hardeman University in 2015 with a double major in English and Spanish and completed his Masters of Arts and Teaching with an Emphasis on Secondary Education in 2018. Mr. Santos is trilingual and speaks Portuguese, Spanish and English. We sat down with Mr. Santos to learn more about his passions, his unique perspective on culture and God’s provision.
Thanks for taking the time to chat with us! You grew up in Brazil, which is probably pretty different than Henderson, Tennessee, or Little Rock, Arkansas. Can you tell us a little bit about your home city and your family?
I grew up in a very big city called Belo Horizonte. Translated, it means “beautiful horizon.” It’s a city surrounded by mountains, and if you go up those mountains, it really is a beautiful horizon.
I have an older sister who is three years older than me, and my mom and dad, who are both my heroes. They are just amazing parents. I appreciate so much everything they did when I was a child. They made sure that we did not lack love.
