Sra. Guerra's website


I began teaching at Dakota in 2006 and have taught all levels:  Spanish 1 - 5 including regular, honors, IB and AP.  This year, for the first time, I am teaching part-time, with just 3 classes on Cardinal Days.  Prior to DRHS, I taught Spanish in Texas and Delaware, English as a Second Language (ESL) and Bilingual in Illinois, and English as a Foreign Language (EFL) in Puebla, Mexico. I also worked for a year as a bilingual paralegal assistant in downtown Chicago.

Although I love language, I care more about my students than Spanish!  Learning languages is all about creating and enhancing connections relationships with new people and concepts!

"If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head.  If you talk to him in his own language, that goes to his heart."- Nelson Mandela

"To have another language is to possess a second soul."- Charlemagne
