All About Me


My name is Liliana Rangel and I serve as the Spanish interpreter/translator for all 42 schools in DeSoto County. I am passionate about linguistics, the scientific study of language and its structure, and of course learning different languages. I have a native/bilingual proficiency in Spanish, a professional working proficiency in Brazilian Portuguese, and I am currently learning my fourth language, French.  As a college student, I had the opportunity to travel and study abroad in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to hone my Portuguese skills and learn about the diverse culture. In 2013, I graduated from the University of Mississippi with a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish with a minor in Portuguese, and in 2016, I also earned a Master of Arts degree in Modern Languages with special emphasis in Spanish Linguistics. During my time at Ole Miss in the Master’s program, I had the opportunity and responsibility to teach freshman level Spanish courses as a graduate teaching assistant.

Here at #TeamDCS, I am thankful to have the opportunity to serve as both the interpreter and translator in Spanish for our district and am eager to help support you and your educational needs.

On the Translation Services section of our English Learners Department website, you will notice links to different procedures/requests for language services. Follow the procedures outlined here and I will be in contact with you after I receive your information. These procedures are the best way for me to uphold deadlines and utilize my electronic calendar to be sure no meetings overlap. The electronic forms must be submitted before I am able to begin working on your request.


We appreciate the work you do in your classrooms, and I look forward to assisting you with your Spanish needs.


¡Muchas Gracias!
