Mrs. Paula Afanador
My name is Paula Afanador. I am from Bogota Colombia. I studied English as a second language at the University of Cordoba in my country, where I got a Bachelor of Arts in Basic Education with an emphasis on Humanities -English program.
I started my career as a Second language teacher with The Air Force Schools in Colombia, where I taught for 4 years and in Medellin for the next two years. After that, I traveled to the USA with a cultural exchange program called Participate. This program allows students to be aware of other cultures and languages. I started to teach Spanish in 2018 here at Scotland Neck Elementary Leadership Academy. In my time here I have met wonderful kids who are full of dreams and motivation.
I hope to be one of the reasons why my students will explore and learn about culture and languages from countries around the world.
