Mrs. Maria Avila


¡Bienvenidos a Tercer Grado!

I am from Bogota, Colombia. I am the Spanish teacher for the Dual Language Program. This is going to be my 4th year at Polenta Elementary and my 7th year teaching. I am very excited meet my new class for the 2019-2020 school year. 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. I will graduate on May 2020. 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 look forward to a great school year!
