Jessica Medeiros - Elementary Spanish Teacher
Hello to all, my name is Jessica Medeiros, and I am the newest member to the elementary level Spanish teacher. I recently moved to LA County to follow my dreams after completing college to obtain an elementary level Spanish teaching position. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Spanish with a concentration in elementary education from Bridgewater State University.
I am 100% Portuguese as both of my parents were born in Portugal. I was born and raised in Fall River, MA. A truly populated Portuguese community. I learned to speak Spanish throughout my childhood; Portuguese was my first language, therefore I learned the Spanish language very quickly in my secondary and college education.
I’ve always had a passion for language and knew I wanted to become a teacher from the start. I love my job and I believe so strongly in the power of education. I always tell my students being bilingual is truly a superpower. My goal is to help your students reach their fullest potential while talking and writing in the target language as much as possible while still making it fun, as we learn many songs, dances, and games that will help the students grasp the language. I hope you find your children enjoying and speaking the Spanish language. Please feel free to come in and explore our classroom, as your student’s work will be posted. I look forwarding to meeting you all!
