     Roxane Rivas

    Hello! My Name is Roxana Rivas! I am 43 years old. I am currently living in Matthews with my husband and my two kids. We all come from a beautiful country named El Salvador. I enjoy traveling and being with friends and family. I love learning from different cultures and trying new food. This will be my first year teaching at Weddington Elementary, but I have 23 years of experience as a teacher. I am excited about making this school year one of my best years of teaching!

    In November 2006, I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in foreign languages: English and French from La Universidad de El Salvador. I also graduated with a Master’s Degree in 2014 in Differentiated Instruction for kids from the Complutense de Madrid University.


    Señorita Ospina

    Hello everyone,  I am Maria Mónica Ospina and I would like to tell you a little about me, I'm from Colombia, a beautiful country full of beautiful things (customs and traditions). I have several years of experience working for an international school where I had the opportunity to teach children from different cultures, which has brought me experience in professional and personal ways. I studied preschool education in my native country.  I’m also getting my Master’s degree in language didactics at Universidad Internacional de la Rioja (UNIR). For me, education is one of the most important things in life. It is a stage in which having a meaningful and positive experience marks the human being for the rest of their life. I am very excited to be part of the Weddington team and to have the opportunity to share my culture, learn from this educational system and culture, and, above all, learn from my wonderful students. I am sure it will be a great year.
