Mrs. Brenda J. Castañeda
Hello, Welcome to Spanish!
So you know a little about me, I am the daughter of immigrants from Honduras, Central América. I am bilingual as well as bicultural. I am what is known as a Heritage speaker, since Spanish is not my first language, but I come from a Latino family and Spanish speaking parents. I am married to a wonderful man from México whom is also bilingual and bicultural. We have 3 great kids whom all speak or understand Spanish to varying degrees. Our family moved from Indianapolis, IN to Madison, AL in July of 2009. I have been a Spanish teacher for 19 years. I am a certified translator through ATA and I have had my own translation business. I have worked with the court system as well hospitals in Indianapolis.
It is my great pleasure to teach your child this year. It's going to be a great year!!
