Meet Shiloh’s new SPLASH teachers!

Welcome our new SPLASH teachers to Shiloh!

Shiloh is very fortunate to move into our 3rd year of the Spanish immersion program. As part of a partnership between UCPS and VIF International, Shiloh hosts full Spanish immersion classes in Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grades. Shiloh was one of the original three schools in UCPS to host an immersion program back in 2012. These three new teachers join returning SPLASH teachers Mrs. Ospina and Mrs. Restrepo. Here is your chance to meet our new SPLASH teachers.

My name is Camila Caro. I am from Colombia, a beautiful country in South America. This year I’m going to be working in Kindergarten. I feel really happy to be here, to share my culture with the kids, and to learn about this amazing country. I have been teaching for 4 years in Pre-school and First grade. I have learned a lot about children, and now I’m so excited for all the things that I’m going to learn from you.

My name is Maria Jose Gonzalez. You can call me Ms. Gonzalez. I’m from Zulia state, Venezuela. I will be Shiloh’s Second Grade SPLASH Teacher this year. I’m very thrilled to meet all of you and to share wonderful experiences together. I am pleased and really happy to be a part of the Bulldog community. I hope everyone is ready for a great start of the school year. I know that together we will all learn far and beyond!

My name is Maria Hernandez, an exchange teacher from Honduras. I am very excited and proud to be part of Shiloh’s staff this year. I will do my best to teach in a caring and loving environment complemented with responsibility, organization, and high standards. Teaching and learning in Spanish is a fun experience considering it is also a meaningful memory. Every year should include new goals. My goals as a teacher are to help students acquire a new language which will help them build new relationships among different cultures, and being able to cooperate and guide them along the way.
