  • Kyle: Tell us how long you’ve been at FASPS and what you teach here.
  • Charles: I’ve been at FASPS since before I had any gray in my beard, and, if I’m not mistaken, that was 10 years ago, at the start of the Middle School.
  • Kyle: What were you doing beforehand?
  • Charles: Before teaching at FASPS, I was teaching in a magnet school in Pinellas County, Florida, which itself was a change of scenery from six years in Paris.
  • Kyle: Earlier you mentioned you had lived in Denver.
  • Charles: Yes, I grew up in Denver, and I finished my college degree there. After I came back from Chile, I taught in Denver public schools as they needed Spanish speakers.
