Just call me Mrs. Riquelme
Mrs. Riquelme...I know I've been married now for over 7 months but no one really calls me that yet. But, now it will be an every day occurrence because starting tomorrow I will be the newest 4th grade teacher at Aberdeen Elementary in Aberdeen, ID. I am so excited to start this new adventure.
When I came home from my mission I knew I wanted to learn more Spanish but didn't want to be a Spanish teacher because that is too specialized. So I got my BA in Spanish and Communications with a cluster in Education. This last year as I worked alongside a wonderful Kindergarten teacher at Fort Hall Elementary I knew I wanted to teach but lacked the certificate. Luckily I was able to enroll in the ABCTE program and after passing 2 very hard tests, was eligible for my teaching certificate.
I am so excited to teach in a school where my Spanish will be well used and much needed. Thanks to everyone's love and support. Pablo and I are truly feeling like things are coming together and feel very blessed. So I guess for now it's "GO TIGERS!"
