Meet Our Kindergarten DLI Teachers
Hola! My name is Kevin García. This is my 9th year of teaching experience and my fourth at Weddington Elementary. I'm so happy to be a Kindergarten teacher this year and I'm so excited about teaching Spanish as well as showing my culture. I'm from Maicao, a small town in the north of my country, Colombia. I have a bachelor’s degree in Spanish and English Teaching from Universidad Popular del Cesar. I’m also getting my Master’s degree in Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language at Universidad Internacional de la Rioja (UNIR). I enjoy reading, creating resources/materials for my class, and crafting. Working with our little children has been one of the most meaningful experiences for me as a teacher. I know this is going to be a year full of achievements for my class and our school community.
¡Hola a todos y todas! My name is Laura Castro. This is my 4th year of teaching experience and my first one at Weddington Elementary. I’m so glad to be part of the Wildcat family and share my culture while I learn from yours. I’m from Bogotá, the capital city of Colombia. I got a bachelor’s degree in Children's Pedagogy and another one in Modern languages from Pontificia Universidad Javeriana. When I’m not teaching, I love traveling, being in nature, learning new languages, and sharing with my friends and family.
