This month, our featured member is Chester Gladue, English teacher at Vaughan Systems!
Chester was born in New York, raised in Homestead, Florida but calls Connecticut his US home. That is where most of his family live and that he visits the most!
How long have you been an ACM member?
Let´s see, I was invited to a Happy Hour back in 2015, where I won a free membership...and the rest is history!
At which ACM event have you had the most fun?
I have fun at all the events, I enjoy meeting new friends, and catching up with my old friends. If I had to choose just one, I would say the 4th of July 2019 was special.
When did you move to Madrid and what brought you here?
I arrived on April 1, 2012, eight years ago. Time has flown by. I came on a company transfer.
What is your favorite thing about Madrid or the madrileños?
I love the lifestyle, the architecture and the people. The people are friendly and a lot of fun, they really know how to enjoy life. I enjoy most the numerous parks around Madrid.
What do you miss most from your hometown?
The only thing I miss is my family. We are lucky because we have great technology to keep us connected. I am so happy in Spain that I have chosen to retire in Alicante. The retirement part won’t happen for quite a while.
The American Club of Madrid (ACM) is the “go-to” organization for English-speaking professionals living in Madrid. Being an active member of the ACM is a great way to network and make new friends while celebrating the American culture.
