Rod Orrego-Lindstad

Rod Orrego-Lindstad, Instructor at Berges Institute

Rod Orrego-Lindstad recently moved to Chicago from Iowa, and he is truly in love with the Windy City. Rod was born and raised in Viña del Mar, Chile. He came to the US at the age of 16, as a Rotary Exchange Student, and graduated High School in Latrobe, Pennsylvania. 

He went to college in Chile, getting his Bachelor's Degree in Journalism and Social Communications and his Master's Degree in Spanish Education. After traveling back and forth many times, Rod decided to move to the US for good.

Whenever he’s not teaching at Berges or at the high school he also teaches at, Rod can be found practicing yoga, or jogging, or, the best of it all, spending time with his spouse and his Cockapoo Sophia.
