Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Eva Serrano, and I am delighted to be part of the Dos Rios community as I enter my 18th year in teaching. I graduated from the University of Northern Colorado with a BA in Spanish/Bilingual-Bicultural Education and in 2006 obtained my MA in Elementary Education. During the summer of 2017, present and past Dos Rios staff members had the great opportunity to visit three schools in the area of the Lancetilla Botnical Garden in Tela, Honduras. Thanks to several Rotary clubs from Greeley and Craig, Colorado, we were able to start the construction of an additional classroom. We also distributed school supplies donated by Dos Rios staff. It was such an amazing and rewarding time to interact with students, parents, teachers, and staff from the Botanical Garden. In 2018 students received uniforms to start their school year and schools were provided with new classroom furniture.
I am excited to be your child's Spanish/Culture teacher as we travel on the path of becoming internationally minded. During our time, we will access Spanish as a second language and become familiar with different cultures around the world as we study a new country every month. My goal is for students to learn how language and culture interact in society. In addition, we are using the Calico Spanish comprehensive curriculum to create a Spanish immersion environment for grades K-5th. Students learn through songs, visuals, and hands-on activities to develop their receptive language skills.
As an International Baccalaureate school, we have been providing school supplies for four schools in Honduras for the last four years. By sending school supplies, we are make learning more accessible for kids in another part of the world. We have collaborated with teachers and students and our goal is to build connections and a learning community around the world. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.
