Degrees and Certifications:
Hello, I am Ms. Vera and I will be your child’s 3rd-grade teacher. I believe being a person with more than one language is a great asset that should be used in every way possible. I remember learning English and looking at signs in a store that read “sale” I would read them in Spanish, which really means “get out.” I couldn’t quite understand why they would want customers to leave. I now know that I was using my Spanish to help me read in English. I always tell my students that using what we know enables us to understand and make sense of different things, especially in school where there is nonstop learning. I am very excited to be your child’s teacher and I’m looking forward to learning a lot from them, as much as they will be learning from me and each other.
