Randy Grillo has been a teacher of young adults for two decades. Through his experiences teaching in Washington State, Mexico, Costa Rica and New Mexico, he has developed a style of education dedicated to creating experiences for students where they slowly gain control of their own learning and the teacher becomes more the facilitator than the expert in the room.
Randy holds a B.A. in Romance Languages and Literature from the University of Washington, a Master’s in Education from Western Washington University, and National Board Teacher Certification in World Languages. He teaches Spanish and is the International Baccalaureate Coordinator at Mandela International Magnet School. He also teaches TESOL methodology classes at Santa Fe Community College and consults with school districts for best practices in working with English Language Learners.
Upon finishing his first school year in Santa Fe in 2009, Randy enrolled in the Summer Teacher Renewal Institute, and since then has participated in Wisdom Circles and El Otro Lado in the Schools. He co-facilitates the Teacher Renewal Series.
