About me

I am Igor Díaz, the new Physical Education teacher. I am from  Spain and I was born in Oviedo, a small city on the north of Spain. I received my undergraduate degree in Physical Education from the University of Oviedo in 2008. I was working as a basketball coach for 5 years in Spain. I moved to Minnesota about a year and a half ago. In the US, I worked for Concordia Language Villages and for Saint Paul Public Schools as a Teaching Assistant last year.

I live in Uptown Minneapolis with my wife Amy and we love walking around Calhoun Lake in the summer time, It is one of my favorites places in the city.  My hobbies are playing basketball and beach volley ball, reading and listening to music.  I am very excited to start working at ISLA. The staff is really nice and professional. I have been getting to know them for the last few weeks.

You are welcome to come to class and see your child participating in the activities. I look forward to a productive and successful year. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. My email is:  idiaz@isla-academy.org
