I would like to take this opportunity to formally introduce myself to you and your children. My name is Diego Perezchica and I have been a teacher in El Paso and Austin, Texas for eight years. Three of those years I taught Bilingual Education in the second and third grade levels. I have also been a fitness educator for 7 years in a bilingual setting. I have learned throughout the years that with knowledge, patience, creativity and passion, I am able to give the best education I can give to any age group who is committed to learning.
I was born and raised in El Paso Texas and my first language is Spanish. I am proud to say that I am a descendant of a Mexican family who has taught me the meaning and value of the words humility, honesty, responsibility, hard work and respect. This type of surrounding also gave me a wonderful advantage of allowing me the ability to communicate by speaking, writing and educating in both English and Spanish.
I have the privilege to be appointed as the Spanish Immersion teacher at Riojas Elementary. As an experienced Bilingual teacher, I am both honored and exited to begin implementing training and knowledge, aligned with Pflugerville ISD curriculum, into the program. I would like to work on creating successful 2nd graders along with Riojas staff and you, our parents. I hope to create wonderful, professional relationships so that we may better our children's education and give them that same opportunity many of us have had throughout our life. I want to give them the opportunity of "choice for success" in their future.
I would like to end this letter by attaching a small questionnaire for you so that I may get to know our students a bit more than just in a classroom setting. It is important for me to know who they are as children at home.
Thank you very much for all of your patience and commitment to education,
