Cruz Portal

Spanish Professor

Cruz is devoted to his lovely family (Jerry, Luis, Rodrigo, Daniela, his wife Silvia and a couple of puppies) and very thankful to be born in this beautiful yet small country, which was christened “Cuschatan” or “places of beautiful stones." He received a diploma in teaching in 1987 from a private university in San Salvador and three years later he received a bachelor degree in education from Pedagogical University of El Salvador. During his spare time he enjoys listening to 70´s and 80´s music, reading literature and testimonies during the Salvadoran civil war. In 2004, he received a master degree in Political Science by Central America University (UCA). At present, he is very interested in writing about Monsignor Romero's spiritual inheritance.
