¡Hola chicos! My name is Elizabeth Villalobos and I am one of your GG leaders in this amazing adventure to San Juan de la Maguana. I am really excited to share this experience with you all as this will be the first time I travel to the DR like some of you. Even though we will have the opportunity to get to know each other during these 2-weeks, here is a little bit about myself.

This will be my 8th year as a high school Spanish teacher at GWCP on the west side of Chicago. I am currently working on finishing my masters at UIC. I am the oldest of 4. I am Mexican-American born and raised in Chicago. I am a new home owner, newly engaged and am a cat mom to a 1 1/2 year old cat named Canelo. I love to listen to music, to travel, to dance and to karaoke.

I cannot wait to meet each of you and to be able to learn about you throughout this trip!

¡Hasta luego! See you all soon!

Liz Villalobos
