Señora Valdés

Clase de  Español

Welcome to Señora Valdes's class!

¡ Hola ! Bienvenidos a mi página. Hello! Welcome to my page!

My name is Elba Valdés and I teach 4th, 5th and 6th Grades at Berkeley and Carteret schools. This is my 5th year teaching Spanish , and my 2nd year as a Spanish Teacher in the Bloomfield School District. I am honored to have the opportunity to teach your children. I am a native speaker from Guatemala, ¡ El País de la Eterna Primavera! (Country of Eternal Spring).

Teaching is my passion. I feel it is meaningful to learn other languages and cultures so that we can learn about the world around us. I want students to feel that they are functional in the language and feel successful in the language, and to get a sense of the Spanish culture.

Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or concerns at
