Fernanda Carra-Salsberg has been a postsecondary foreign language educator for the past fifteen years. Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, her interest in language, culture, migration and identity formations stems from her repeated relocations as a child and an adolescent migrant, and from experiences as a foreign-language pedagogue. She has taught English as a Second language and Spanish. Carra-Salsberg is currently teaching Spanish Grammar to Heritage and Second language learners at York University, Ontario, Canada. Carra-Salsberg has obtained a Bachelor of Arts Degree with honours in Spanish Language, Literature and Linguistics at York University, a Bachelor of Education Degree in Second Language Acquisition and History at OISE UT, and a Master of Arts Degree in Spanish Language and Ibero-American Literature at the University of Toronto.
Most recently, Carra-Salsberg has completed an Interdisciplinary Doctoral Degree at the Faculty of Education, York University. Carra-Salsberg resides in the Greater Toronto area (Ontario, Canada) with her spouse and two daughters.
