My name is Leslie Machado Sparks and I am the Spanish teacher at TFAA. I am originally from Brazil and I speak English, Spanish and Portuguese (my native language). I moved to the United States eight years ago. I graduated from MTSU with a major in Spanish and minors in Education and Portuguese.
I have been teaching for 11 years and I love teaching! I also taught English in Brazil. My husband, Richard Sparks, is from Murfreesboro TN. We met in a mission trip in Brazil. We have a son named Jacob and a daughter named Olivia . I love spending time with my little family, reading, shopping and decorating my home.
