Hola! Me llamo...
Yo seré la maestra de su niño y quiero darle la bienvenida para este año escolar. Estoy muy emocionada en conocerlos y trabajar juntos para el éxito educacional de su niño/a. Quiero decirles un poco de mi. Yo he trabajado en la escuela Euclid por 11 años y los primeros cinco de esos años enseñe Kindergarten. Los otros años he enseñado preescolar, siendo este grado mi favorito. Tengo mi licenciatura en educación de primera infancia y una maestría en currículo e instrucción. Tengo un niño que está en su primer año de colegio y una niña que está en segunda año de escuela secundaria. Me gusta leer, cocinar, y pasar tiempo con mi familia.
Hello My Name Is...
Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! I'm so excited to be teaching your child. This is my 13th year in the district. A little background on me is that I have an undergrad in social work from University of Wisconsin Whitewater and a Masters in Early Childhood/Special Education from Roosevelt University. Most recently I have a ESL degree to help teach children who speak more than one langage. When not teaching I love spending time with my husband and 3 kids!
