Ms. Gamez Salazar

¡Hola a todos!

My name's Virginia Gámez Salazar (two last names, no middle names!), but my students call me 'maestra' or 'profe'. I currently teach Elementary and Spanish 1. This is my first year with F.I.V.E. and I'm delighted to be teaching your learner. We'll sing, draw, dance, and talk in Spanish as much as possible. 

I am originally from southern Spain, where I taught English to Spanish students for 8 years. Although I don't have much free time, I like spending it with my kids, learning languages (I'm learning French, Italian, and Marathi), listening to music, baking, traveling, and binge-watching European mystery series.
