Duarte, Maria Claudia-Dual Language 2nd Grade




Mrs. Duarte

Hi! My name is Maria Claudia Duarte I am from Bogotá, Colombia. My husband Joshuah and I got married a year ago on the Blue Ridge Parkway with an amazing mountain view that make a dream come true. We love hiking, kayaking and traveling.

I love how the mountains here remind me about the mountains in my city in Colombia. The things I love the most about Colombia are the family gatherings and delicious food we have especially “Ajiaco”. it is a traditional soup in Bogotá

I have a bachelor degree in Early Child Education and a post graduate degree in Education Management from Colombia. I started teaching in 2011 and I have been working as a global educator/ Spanish immersion in North Carolina for the last 4 years.

I am very excited to be part of NBES and share my culture and knowledge with this beautiful community. Having this cultural exchange opportunity has been a wonderful experience to broaden my teaching career and myself.

We are going to have an amazing year together!
