Debbie Sommer:
My love of Spanish began when I was a child living in Chile. When we returned to the US I began studying Spanish as soon as it was offered. I graduated from Madison College (now JMU) with a BA in Spanish, and more recently I received my Masters' Degree from the University of Salamanca. I was a Spanish teacher for 29 years in Hampton City Schools. I served as vice president of AATSP for four years and have been serving as president for the last 4 years. I have served on the FLAVA Board since 2000. I have also been a member of the Governor's Spanish Academy Screening Committee since 1997. I am currently the Curriculum Leader for Foreign Languages and ESL. Secretary

Pam Ayuso:

I was born in Danville but have had a love for Spanish from the day I walked into Spanish I in high school. (My Plan A was to be a nurse!) By the 11th grade I knew I would be going to Stratford College in Danville, had met my professors and knew I would be spending my Junior Year in Spain. After graduation from Stratford, I went back to Spain and lived two more years. My son was born there. I've taught Spanish here at Tunstall High School for 30 years. Now I also teach at Averett University and Danville Community College. I go back to Spain whenever I have the chance. I served as Treasurer of the Virginia Chapter of AATSP for a few years and am currently Secretary of the Chapter.
