Graciela Utor

Graciela Utor was born in Peru. She teaches WFO's Accelerate and Professional Development programs in Spanish. Before becoming a teacher, Graciela was first a student in the latter program; she loved this program because she realized that we need to prepare and learn, in order to move forward and fulfill our dreams. Graciela's commitment as a teacher is 100% and more, and she wants to contribute to her community what she has learned in this journey with love, dedication and responsibility. Graciela is infinitely grateful to WFO for the trust and support.
