Welcome to Mrs. de la Torriente's first grade class! I am thrilled to have your child in my class and to have the privilege of working with them to reach their fullest potential! Teaching is my passion and I sincerely love helping young children grow socially, emotionally and academically.

A little about me:
I am originally from a Chicago suburb and moved to Whitewater in 2016 and have been falling in love with this community ever since. I received my bachelors degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in Communication, and received my degree in Elementary Education from UW-Whitewater. When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Brian, and our newborn son, Theodore. We also love to play with our three rescue dogs - Zoey, Bailey and Buddy. There is never a dull moment in the de la Torriente household! Some of my other interests include reading, attending baseball games (go White Sox!), and fishing at my family's cabin in Minnesota. 

It is going to be a great school year, filled with so many adventures in learning! If you have any questions or concerns throughout the year, please do not hesitate to contact me!
