Please join me in welcoming Ms. Adriana Pardo, our new 4th grade teacher. Ms. Pardo, will be replacing Ms. Rosar for the rest of the school year.
Ms. Pardo taught in Italy and did her student teaching at Fox Road Elementary. She is a graduate of Appalachian State and her family is from Colombia. She moved to the United States when she was 9 years old.
Despite living most of her life in the United States, Ms. Pardo is still very much in touch with her Colombian culture. She also speaks fluent Spanish.
Ms. Pardo met her students today in small groups and will work with them tomorrow as a class. She joins us full-time on Monday. We are arranging a special "Meet the Teacher" event for Ms. Pardo on Thursday Nov. 19th at 5:30 pm, just before our Cultural Dance Performance.
