Hi, my name’s Wayne Cabradilla. I grew up in a small suburb just outside Boston, Massachusetts. As a kid, I enjoyed playing hockey and camping and hiking as a Boy Scout. After graduating high school, I attended Swarthmore College, where I majored in economics and minored in Chinese language and then I studied for another year at the Hopkins-Nanjing Center in Nanjing, China. After finishing that program, I visited Taiwan on a whim in 2003 and have lived here ever since. My hobbies include bicycling through the beautiful hills of Taiwan and taking landscape photography, but most of my time now is taken up by taking care of my two rambunctious kids, Andrew and Allison. One of the pleasures I get from teaching at ACES is being able to watch my students mature and make concrete progress over the course of seven semesters. I hope that you can be one of those students!
