Hola! Bienvenido al maravilloso mundo de Segundo Grado.
My name is maestra Ana de Lourdes Pardo and I am your second grade teacher. This is my first year at Arco Iris and I am very happy and excited to be teaching second grade this school year. I was born in Washington D.C. and my family moved to Caracas, Venezuela when I was 7 years old and studied all my life in bilingual schools.
I just moved to Oregon with my daughter to start a new beginning and working at Arco Iris Spanish Immersion school is part of that! I have an Associate Degree in Psychopedagogy - Teacher resource in Learning Disabilities- and a Bachelor in Science in Education. I had the great opportunity to teach Pre-K to 8th grade in English and Spanish as a second language in a local and International school in Venezuela. I have enjoyed the art of teaching for 15 years!
When I am not teaching at school, I like to spend time with my daughter, having quality time, watching movies, eating sushi, reading, enjoying my family and friends, and relaxing at home.
I am looking forward to a great and exciting year in second grade!
My professional goal:
I am use to work as a team (teacher-student-parents-school) because every student is different, so as a the teacher, I focus on each student educational needs, weaknesses and strengths, through classes and assessments to help students achieve their highest potential and be successful at school. I also like to keep in touch with the parents to let them know about their children progress and ways they can help them succeed in their classes.
