Having grown up on an island where Spanish is the first language, Ms. Rodriguez chose teaching Spanish to children whose first language is English. She takes great pride in watching her students become bilingual by way of speaking and writing the Spanish language, in addition to teaching them how to think in Spanish all the while remaining spiritual with a continued belief in God.
