¡Hola a todos! My name is Wendy Bermúdez and I am first and foremost a bilingual educator. I was born in El Salvador, grew up on Long Island and attended college in New York City. I graduated from Barnard College and received my masters in Bilingual/Bicultural Education from Teachers College at Columbia University. I have a second masters in Spanish Language and Culture from the University of Salamanca, Spain. I have taught in South Korea, New York City and now Virginia. It is my seventh year teaching in Arlington Public Schools and I love it!
I am passionate about social justice education and serve as an advisor for Teaching for Change, an organization that provides resources that encourage teachers and students to build a more equitable multicultural society. I am very excited to be working as the Resource Teacher for the Gifted and am committed to providing critical and creative thinking learning opportunities for our students!
