Emily Meador

About the Author
Emily Meador has been an elementary Spanish teacher in Austin, Texas, for the last 11 years. She has lived in Quito, Ecuador, and Nogales, Mexico, and travels to Spanish-speaking countries with her daughters as often as she possibly can! Emily and her students find that reading comprehensible novels is one of the most engaging and fun ways to acquire Spanish. Emily especially appreciates how novels can provide young learners with the opportunity to relax their bodies and listen attentively, while at other times novels can allow for students to learn through games, song, and movement. She hopes other teachers and students will have a memorable learning experience with her first novel, Nico el ñeque.
