• ¡Hola! My name is Milton Zhinin-Barreto. I'm super excited to be part of the Hellgate faculty.

    I was born and raised in Ecuador. Initially I went to college in Cuenca, Ecuador where I received a BA in Industrial Engineering and then Machala, Ecuador where I received a BA in Chemical Engineering. After years of working as quality control manager in a manufactury corporation, managing my own greehouse, and participating in Ecuador's Nacional Mining Congress (which helped create The Mining and Hydrocarbons law in Ecuador's new Constitution) I began teaching in Ecuador and outside the country. I moved to Missoula in 2015 to finish my degrees at the UM where I received a BA in Spanish, a minor in Latin American Studies, and AA in Mathemathics. In 2020 I finished a M.Ed in Arts and Education at the UM. 

    In the summertime I spend my time between running and biking. I also like to garden, sew and cook, and in the winter backcounty ski and ski mountaniering.

    I firmily believe that language has the power to explore creativity while creating connections. I welcome you to visit my classroom, 324, at anytime.
