    Welcome to Profesora Daniels' Spanish Class! This is my second year at Northwood Elementary and with the Mercer Island School District.  I am excited about returning to work with the Mercer Island community. I LOVE teaching Spanish and and I am thrilled to be working in a district that is bringing World Language instruction to elementary-aged students. 
    Prior to coming to Northwood, I was teaching high school & college students in the Enumclaw area.  I studied Spanish at Seattle University and I lived in Puebla, Mexico for a portion of my undergraduate studies.  I am VERY passionate about travel and have enjoyed learning the Spanish language & culture first hand through travel and exchange programs.  I love sharing my stories, songs, art, and cultural experiences with Northwood students! 
    This year our Elementary Spanish Team is excited about creating a new and engaging Spanish curriculum to be used in grades K-5!   Our Spanish team presented the new curriculum to the school board last May and it was received with great enthusiasm and approved! The purpose of this curriculum is to give students the most comprehensive foundation in Spanish possible, and to encourage their continuity in the language when they leave elementary school.
