Hi, my name is Chris Cherney. I am from Cleveland, Ohio—a Midwestern American city right on one of the Great Lakes (Lake Erie). I went to Kent State University in Ohio and graduated with a degree in English Literature and Writing. I enjoy writing, playing music, cooking, and travel. This is my third year with the Language Assistant Program, but this is my first year in Madrid. My first year I spent in Jaén and my second in Málaga. I’m really excited to get the chance to explore such a culturally rich, diverse, and lively city such as Madrid! I’m really looking forward to working at CEIP Doctor Severo Ochoa this year. I feel so grateful for this opportunity!
