BIENVENIDOS A LA CLASE DE ESPAÑOL
¡Hola! I am Señora Valbuena and I am originally from Bogotá, Colombia. I graduated from Institución Universitaria Colombo Americana in Bilingual Education (Spanish and English). Currently, I am doing my master's in Education with a concentration in special populations at Augustana University. This will my eight-year teaching (two in Colombia and seven in the U.S). I have taught elementary, high school, and College. This is my first year at Dakota Valley, and I am very excited to be part of this Community.
Learning a second language can bring you many opportunities in your life like, constantly exercising your brain, experiencing a different culture, making new friends, more opportunities to find a job nationally or internationally, among other exciting possibilities. In this class, we will build a close enjoyable community where learning a second language and learning about different cultures is fun (even if you make mistakes). Just remember "To have another language is to have a second soul" (Charlemagne).
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you might have. My email address is Amanda.email@example.com
¡Ten un grandioso año!
