Mrs. Amber Paquette

Hi West Smithfield family!  I'm the English as a Second Language (ESL) teacher for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade.  I grew up in Johnston County graduating from North Johnston High School and then went on to graduate from N.C. State University.  This is my 6th year teaching. I enjoy working with students from different parts of the world and learning about their cultures as well.  I lived in Ecuador for about 3 1/2 years which allowed me to improve my Spanish and now I also enjoy translating and interpreting for those who need it.  

 

Saludos, familia de West Smithfield!  Soy la maestra de Inglés Como Segunda Idioma (ESL) para 3er, 4to, y 5to grados.  Crecí aquí en el Condado de Johnston graduándome de North Johnston High School y después me gradué de N.C. State University.  Este es mi sexto año enseñando.  Disfruto trabajar com los estudiantes de diferentes partes del mundo y aprender sobre sus culturas también.  He vivido en Ecuador por 3 1/2 años y eso me permitió mejorar mi español y ahora me gusta ayudar traducir y interpretar para aquellos que necesiten.

 

After an interesting end to the school year, it's finally summer time! I hope you all have a restful, enjoyable summer and I look forward to seeing you in August!

 

Después de un interesante fin al año escolar, ya llegó las vacaciones de verano!  Espero que tengan un verano de mucho descanso y disfrutamiento y espero verles en agosto!
