ABOUT DR. MORTON
Just Dr. Morton is a resource run by me to teach you proven motivational strategies to learn a new language and optimizing it for success—but what is the smart way to acquire a new language?
Who is Dr. Morton?
AND HOW DOES HE KNOW ABOUT THIS STUFF?
I learned Spanish because I needed to. Like so many other people, I enjoy speaking and holding conversations in Spanish.
I graduated from college with a graduate degree in Educational Psychology and worked as a teacher for a charter school in Los Angeles. Soon after my graduation, I felt like there was more out there for me than to just be a teacher. I had enjoyed my time as a teacher up until then—but there are some changes in our lives that are out of our control.
At the beginning of 2019, just a few months after the new year began, I was laid off from my job.
THIS COULD HAVE BEEN A TERRIBLE TIME IN MY LIFE, BUT IT WASN’T, THANKS TO THE SKILLS THAT I HAVE ACQUIRED AS A TEACHER.
How Esperanza Española (Spanish Hope) began?
A LITTLE ORIGIN STORY ABOUT A PASSION OF MINE
I have the power to control my future. Running an online business built around my passion allowed me to dedicate more of my time with my family rather than request it from a job that I was no longer passionate about.
When I started Esperanza Española (Spanish Hope) back in 2018, my goal was simple: share the vocabulary and context strategies that have helped me to learn Spanish. Since then, it has become remarkably easy to find Spanish words and phrases online—but what has gotten harder is finding people who are motivated to learn a new language.
THIS IS WHERE DR. MORTON COMES IN AND WHY I CALL MYSELF THE LANGUAGE MOTIVATOR
I want to use my passion and skills to help you reach your goals. This is also why I publish my FACEBOOK GROUP so that I can learn what problems people like you are having with learning Spanish.
Why I do what I do?
HINT: IT’S NOT ABOUT THE MONEY OR FAME
My family is the primary motivation behind my business, and you’ll hear me mention them ever so often throughout my site. I like to plan and cherish every day of my life around the time that I have to spend with my mom. The best part of my job is that it allows me to plan my day around my family, and not around my business.
YOU’RE NOT TOO LATE
