Bienvenidos a la clase de la Señorita Cullishpuma

Hello students and parents,


This 2021-22 school year will mark my third year teaching Spanish at Amundsen High School. I look forward to many more. I currently teach Higher Level Spanish III at the DP level and Spanish Speakers I and II. I am Ecuadorian and I am passionate about sharing my cultural experiences with students and learning about theirs. During my free time I enjoy reading, watching movies, traveling and doing DIY projects.

 
Extra support for students and/or families can be requested via email at [email protected] I also have office hours by appointment (2nd, 5th, 7th or before/ after school).
 
Refer to your child's google classroom account for class syllabus, homework assignments and deadlines.

 

Thanks for visiting!
