Teachers From Spain Bring New Culture To Tulsa Schools

A whole new world.

Teachers from Spain travel thousands of miles to live and teach in Tulsa.

11 instructors from Spain and their families have arrived in the past week ahead of the new school year.

They're eager to learn all about American culture, and in turn, teach the kids all about European life and language.

It's a win-win, because bi-lingual teachers are in short supply locally.

The teachers will be spread out between different schools including, Monroe Dual Language Immersion, Zarrow International, and Eisenhower International.

Plus, it's an eye-opening experience for everyone involved.

Spanish teacher Cesar Garcia-Morales searched for the right words in English, telling Channel 8, "I think it's important to know something about us: tradition, art, culture. Something around Spanish language learning".

Cesar says Tulsa apartments are much bigger than those in Spain, and he loves how many parks we have in this area
