                      About Me

    Hola… ¿Quién es la Sra. Roldán?       


          My name is María Roldán and I was born and raised in Colombia, South America and moved to the United States as a teenager. I earned my undergraduate degree at Springfield College in Springfield, Massachusetts (MA) and completed my Master's degree in education with a Concentration in Spanish at Framingham State College in Framingham, MA.

         I have taught Spanish at elementary, middle, high school, and college level. I began my experience in the Spanish Immersion Program in the Mendon-Upton school district while also being the program coordinator. In addition to that, I also directed a Spanish Summer Immersion camp in Massachusetts and here at Northview School conducted the first two Spanish Immersion Summer Camp.  I consider myself energetic, enthusiastic, open-minded, and creative. I take teaching very seriously because it gives me the opportunity to guide, empower, and prepare my students for the challenges ahead of them. 

         My traveling experiences have been very pleasant because I was exposed to the culture, richness, art, values, and customs in a variety of situations.  Your child will have an opportunity to explore and experience authentic and vivid experiences in my classroom. Also I have traveled with our IB students and other teachers to Costa Rica, Puerto Rico, France, Spain, England, Germany, Switzerland, Liechtenstein and the Alps regions. It was such a great opportunity and experience for our students. 

                          I am confident that your child's foreign language experience will be meaningful, pleasant, and well rewarded.  I look forward to      
                           maintaining  an open and respectful relationship with you and your child.
