Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — When Spanish students at Peninsula College walked into their classroom in Port Angeles last week, they were greeted by Paloma Toledo de la Torre from Madrid.

Toledo de la Torre will teach all 2012-13 Spanish classes on the Port Angeles campus at 1502 E. Lauridsen Blvd., as she fills in for Reina Barreto, who is on a yearlong academic sabbatical focusing on women writers and artists of the Cuban diaspora who are continuing a tradition of Cuban literature in the United States.

Toledo de la Torre has been a professor of Spanish language and literature at I.E.S. Siglo XXI de Leganes in Madrid since 1990 and has served as its department head several times.

She received her degree from Universidad Complutense de Madrid.

Her interests include writing, music, reading, singing, dancing, hiking and guitar playing as well as travel.
