Hello, my name is Mrs. Figueroa and this will be my 8th year teaching at the elementary school level. I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree from Arizona State University with an emphasis in Spanish as a second language and English as a second language endorsement. After working at the high school level, I realized that I wasn’t ready to teach older students and decided to become a guest teacher at the elementary level. I then received my Master’s in Elementary education with a bilingual endorsement from Aurora University.
I’m the 8th teacher in my family and I like to think that teaching runs in my blood. I don’t see myself doing anything else but teaching, and I’m looking forward to starting a new and exciting school year.
