Emilio Avilés Casquet

I am from Almería, on the southern coast of Spain, in the region of Andalucía. In Spain, a bachelor's degree is a five-year degree and includes studies of subjects such as: Spanish language and literature, classical languages, philosophy and English. I spent my fifth year of college at the University of New Mexico as an exchange student. I also completed a one-year teacher certification program in Granada. I have been teaching at NIU since 2001.
