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!

    Senora Anaya


    ¡Hola! My Name is Mrs. Isabel Anaya! I´m from Spain! I live in Charlotte, NC with my family which includes my husband of 19 years, Santi, and our two children. We have twins, Irene and Celia. They are 9 years old. I enjoy spending time with my family and traveling around the world together. I´m a Kindergarten teacher and this will be my 20th year teaching & my second year in USA  at Weddington Elementary School.

    I grew up in Valencia, Spain which it’s a beautiful city on the east coast near the Mediterranean sea.  We have amazing beaches! Spain  is full of culture everywhere. Its cuisine is very varied and traditions are incredible. I invite you  to discover Spain! I can help you!! I am excited to share a lot of  things of my culture!!.

    My personal challenge as a Dual Language Teacher this school year is that all of my students are HAPPY in their class. This is the most important base to develope future knogledge. I want them to feel confortable and confident to learn a new language. When you learn a new language, it can be hard but when you teach with love all is possible.
