Heidi Zelaya

Spanish Instructor


While Heidi has been at Beacon Academy this year supporting all of the faculty, next year we are thrilled to welcome her as a member of our World Language team teaching Spanish. Heidi is from Blackfoot Idaho, but she grew up in Cuernavaca Mexico. Her first language is Spanish, and she is always enthusiastic to teach about her culture and the language. At the beginning of her studies, she spent a year working with indigenous cultures. She graduated from Bachilleres Cuernavaca and received another bachelor’s degree in Education and Social Sciences from UNAM, National Autonomous University of Mexico. She has been teaching for 16 years and is excited to teach at Beacon.
