Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Natalia Yanez

I am a Kindergarten teacher with eleven years of experience in Early Childhood Education. I have been teaching the Spanish part of the Dual Language Program at Polenta Elementary for the past three years, where students learn not only two languages but also have the opportunity to learn about cultures around the world.  I enjoy working with young children and helping them grow in all areas. I also specialized in Learning Difficulties. I've prepared for your child to come this year by attending Math Foundations Training and I look forward to sharing the amazing literature that I read this summer with your children.


My favorite drink is water , coffee or diet coke. My favorite candy is Hershey's cookies and cream or any other that doesn't have peanut butter in it. For school supplies, my class is always in need of color paper and cardstock.

For Ms. Bergillos: Favorite drink- coffee and favorite snack- strawberries and mango or nuts.
