Andres Sovero joined the Frederick Gunn School as a World Languages faculty member in the fall of 2022. He was raised in Lima, Peru and New Milford, Connecticut. Sovero was also a member of the Multicultural Club at Western Connecticut State University, where he earned his Bachelor’s degree. Later, he graduated from Northeastern University with a Master’s in the Administration of Higher Education. Prior to joining FGS, Mr. Sovero managed student support services programs at Central Connecticut State University. Currently, in addition to coaching Boys Highlander Soccer at FGS, he also teaches Spanish II and Spanish II Honors. This year, he is a dorm parent in Brinsmade and lives on campus with his wife, Luzvet, and their daughter, Arianna. 

Q&A with Mr. Sovero:

Why did you choose to come to this school and which aspect piqued your interest the most?

“I chose to come to the FGS because it is a new challenge for me. I used to live here, so it’s a bit of a return to home.”

Why did you want to become a teacher?

“I’ve always seen education as a means of social mobility for the students that I served. And I also always believed and continue to believe that solid education, especially in the high school years, is very fundamental for anybody’s growth, individual successes, and experiences that they haven’t had. So being in education and working with high school students, I think, puts me in a position where I can help students be the best version of themselves while sticking to core values that I believe are important.”

How has your experience been so far?

“I enjoy my life here because there’s a very intentional approach to academic work and life outside of the classroom, and that was something that was important to me.”
