Bienvenidos a la clase de la Señorita Cullishpuma

Hello students and parents,


I have recently joined the Viking faculty.  I have taught Spanish at Senn High School as well as Clemente High School.  I am excited to be at Amundsen and look forward to teaching at Amundsen for many years. 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.


I currently teach Higher Level Spanish III at the DP level and Spanish Speakers II and Spanish 2.  My after school office hours are from 3:00 - 3:30 p.m in room 243 and I am also available during 7th period in room 243. Refer to your child's google classroom account for class syllabus, homework assignments and deadlines.
