About Us

Ignacio Medina
Teacher & Facilitator 

Hi - I'm Ignacio, but call me Nacho. I was born in Uruguay. I've been teaching Spanish in traditional and online classroom settings for over 20 year years—in Uruguay and in the United States. 

I'm passionate about languages and cultures and enjoy teaching—and learning from my students. I look forward to building a great community of Spanish language learners.

I'm a Fullbright Scholar and earned my Master's degree in Education and Technology from Buffalo State College in Buffalo, New York.

My wife and I welcomed our first child, Ismael, in December 2022.

Barbi Avilés

Teacher & Facilitator 

Hi! I'm Barbi. I'm from Argentina, and my passion for teaching began when I started my studies at the National University of Southern Argentina, where I received a Bachelor's degree in Education Sciences. 

 Since then, I've worked throughout Buenos Aires in a variety of educational settings before joining Cada Día in 2020. 

Today,  I'm part of the Spanish language teaching community. I design curriculums to maximize Spanish language learning in a fun, interactive environment. I look forward to helping students learn Spanish in a fun and supportive environment.
