Curt McNeal has always enjoyed learning and sharing knowledge with others. In his previous roles as Professor at the Universidad Abierta Interamericana, and as EducationUSA Academic Advisor for the US Department of State, his primary concern has always been meaningful interaction with students. As an aficionado of Spanish Language and Latin Culture, he’s called Buenos Aires his home for the last decade. Curt holds a Bachelor’s Degree in History from Florida State University, but deep down considers himself a musician. When he gets a chance to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, he can most likely be found in his beloved hometown of Pensacola, Florida.
