Mrs. Jacqueline M. Laracuenta

¡Hola! My name is Mrs. Laracuenta, but I am known by my students as "Señora Laracuenta."  I am pleased to be your child’s Spanish teacher this year.  I am very proud to say that I have pioneered the Spanish FLES (Foreign Language Early Start) program at Springhurst. Prior to working at Springhurst, I worked at Hillside Elementary School for nine years, where I have also pioneered the FLES program.   

I am a native Spanish speaker, and I am very proud to teach my language and culture to your child.  I have been working in education for sixteen years. I have a Master's degree in Counseling with a bilingual extension, a Bachelor's degree in Spanish 7-12, a N-6 FLES extension, and a minor in Seconday Education.   

I understand that every child has different strengths and weaknesses in their learning process.  Therefore, I am committed to having differentiated instruction in my class with a variety of opportunities for my students to achieve their goals.  My curriculum design incorporates the connection of Spanish to ELA, math and Google projects, which I truly enjoy .

My husband and I have two beautiful daughters and one dog.  When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, as well as  reading and dancing.  I look forward to getting to know all of you this school year!  Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or would like to know more about the curriculum or expectations. My email address is laracuentaj@dfsd.org 

¡Muchas Gracias!

Señora Laracuenta
