3rd Grade Dual Language Teacher Bachelor's Degree in Foreign Languages

Mrs. Maria Avila

I am from Bogota, Colombia. I am the Spanish teacher for the Dual Language Program. This is my 3rd year at Polenta Elementary and my 6th year teaching. I am very excited to join the 3rd grade team. I have a Bachelor's degree in Elementary education with emphasis in Spanish and foreign languages: English and French. I am currently pursuing my master's degree in TESOL at Greensboro College. Back in Colombia, I had the opportunity to work with students from all ages in both schools and language centers. I used to teach Science, Math, English, and Phonics. I have been participating in Science and Math trainings in order to learn new strategies and techniques which I look forward to applying in my lessons this year. I look forward to a great school year!
