Welcome & Bienvenido to Mrs. Margarita Hurtado Website!
I am so excited to work with you this year as we communicate and develop more in Spanish language richness. In my website you can find information to help you stay on track and get ready to shine in your Spanish class. If you have any questions about how I grade homework, tests, and projects look for the class syllabus.
A Little Bit About Me: This is my 18th year of teaching in the Everett School District, I taught at Cascade High School for 17 years until the end of the last school year. I decided to transfer to Everett High to follow my dreams to teach the new AP Literature and Culture class. I taught 21 years of math in my native country, Peru. I graduated from the Normal Superior Santa Rosa University in Cusco, Peru with a bachelors degree of Math and Physics. In 1994, I immigrated to USA with my two teenagers and started another chapter of my life. In 1999, I began to work at Seattle School District. In the year 2000 I joined Cascade High School as a Spanish teacher. I have continued my education at the University of Washington in the Spanish program and decided to do my masters degree in Spain, where I graduated in 2005 at the University of Salamanca with the degree of "Master of Spanish Language and Culture.
I enjoy teaching Spanish all these past years in the Everett School District and I am very proud to be here and share my knowledge and passion with you all!
I am looking forward that my students have a year full of learning, growth, and development.
My Interest include: Cooking and exploring the Peruvian Menu, traveling, being active in my church, reading, and knitting. I also like to spend time with my family and grandchild Andres.
Let's have a great year!
