|Welcome to Mrs. de la Torriente's first grade class! I am thrilled to have your child in my class and to help them reach their fullest potential! Teaching is my passion and I sincerely love helping young children grow socially, emotionally and academically.
I received my bachelors degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and then returned to UW-Whitewater to receive a teaching license in Elementary Education. When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Brian, and our three rescue dogs - Zoey, Bailey and Buddy. I also love to read, and fish at my family's Minnesota cabin.
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!
