Hello ECI parents and travelers!
My name is Dave Whiteside and I’m from a small town south of San Francisco called Los Gatos. I studied at San Jose State University and upon finishing my degree there I promptly went to Granada, Spain to complete a four-month language and cultural immersion program. I fell in love with the city and Spanish culture and, after returning to California for 2 years (with a month-long stay in Antigua, Guatemala in between), I returned to the city as an English language assistant. I have just completed my third year here with plans of coming back in the fall for a fourth.
