iBienvenidos a la clase de espanol con la maestra Senora V!  Welcome to Spanish class with the teacher Senora V!   In Lincoln Park Elementary School students in grades K-4 will be exposed to the Spanish language and culture once a week for 40 minutes.  They will also learn Spanish all year long from September-June. 
 

I also teach English as a Second Language (E.S.L.) to some of the fourth graders at LPES. 

 

ABOUT ME~

I come from a Spanish speaking background.  My mom is from Colombia.  I was born in Florida and when I was three years old, I moved down to Colombia with my brother and lived in Cali with my grandparents and my aunts for a year.  We lived in Colombia so that my mom could go to school full time to become a hair stylist. When we moved back to NJ to live with my parents again, I had forgotten English and only spoke in Spanish.  Shortly after I started kindergarten, I became an E.S.L. (English as a Second Language) student for a short time.  Almost every summer, my family and I would visit my family in Cali and Bogota, Colombia.  I took Spanish in Middle School, four years of it in high school, and majored in Elementary Education and Spanish from Rider University in Lawrenceville, NJ.   I have been a Spanish and ESL teacher since September 1997.  I have taught at the Elementary, Middle, High School, and college level in public and private schools in northern N.J. all this time.  I am working towards creating roots in the Lincoln Park School District.  I want to build a strong Spanish program for the students in Lincoln Park.  

The following topics will be covered:
