Spanish Education for Women (SEW) teaches Spanish to women who work with Latinos in our schools and neighborhoods. We are an independent, not-for-profit organization.

Working-class families in Guadalajara open their hearts and homes to SEW students every summer.

Young Mexican women share their stories and traditions with SEW students in afternoon tutoring sessions.

Talented instructors teach us speaking, listening, reading and writing skills on the lovely campus of ITESO, the  Jesuit university of Guadalajara.

Debbie Polhemus, Nancy Haines, and Denise Curry SND founded SEW in 1986.  We are committed to best practices in second-language teaching and solidarity with the people of Latin America.
