Kindergarten Dual Language Website

    Students in Kindergarten experience cultures around the world through global projects. This is one of the most important goals of our program. Colombia and Chile are some of the countries that children know very well. Teachers establish perfect scenarios for communication among other nations by videos and chats, so kids get the chance to see foreign kindergarteners, ask questions, get responses, and even skype with them using their second language.

    Learning Spanish has never been more exciting! In Dual Language Kindergarten we embrace language and culture!

    My name is Kevin García this is my 8th year of teaching experience and my third 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 bachelor degree in Spanish and English Teaching from Universidad Popular del Cesar. I enjoy reading, creating resources/materials for my class, and crafts.  Working with our little ones has been one of the most meaningful experiences for me as a teacher and I have learned a lot from my students. I know this is going to be a year full of achievements for my class and our school.
