    Roxane Rivas

    Senora 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 to make this school year one of my best years 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.




    Hola a todos! I am Jose Duitama and I am 34 years old.  I was born in Guican a small but beautiful town in the Cordillera Oriental with beautiful mountains and snow.

    I graduated from the Universidad Pedagogica y Tecnologica de Colombia in 2011 as Licenciado en Idiomas Modernos Español - Inglés. 

    Teaching is my passion. One of my favorite things about it is the astonishment in every student when we understand something new and the best part of it is when they create something meaningful with their findings.
