Faculty Biography:
Profesora Robalino is a native from Ecuador. She taught local and American college students for ten years in Quito.  She has taken two MC groups to Ecuador and has absolutely loved to share her country with her students.  Profesora Robalino has a strong interest in language and culture, most especially colonial cultural
expressions. She is always happy to find students who share this interest with her while exploring the 16th
century churches of Quito. MC students always make her very proud because of their maturity and the respect
and interest they show for other cultures. She has come to learn that students love Ecuadorian“helado” (ice cream) so she is always willing to guide students to the most traditional ice cream shops
in town.
