Yara Cantu, Spanish Specialist

Yara Cantu Sittler is a native Spanish speaker from Monterrey, Mexico. She is excited to be the Spanish Specialist at the International School of Texas. She strongly believes learning a foreign language is an amazing opportunity for children, and she feels privileged to be part of it.

She graduated Cum Laude with a Bachelor Degree in Educational Sciences from the University of Monterrey. Additionally, Yara has a degree in Preschool Education from the Secretary of Public Education in Mexico, and she completed a Pastry Arts program at Auguste Escoffier School of Culinary Arts in Austin.

Yara was the Spanish teacher for two years at an Austin area international IB school. Prior to that, she taught for seven years at San Roberto International School in San Pedro Garza Garcia, Mexico. In addition, she expanded her boundaries by spending two summers as a summer school counselor at Collège du Léman in Switzerland.
