About Me

iHola, Bienvenidos a la clase de Español! 
 
My name is Emma Vizcaino or Mrs. Viz.  
 
This will be my 9th year teaching eighth grade at Willow Springs and my 21st year as a Spanish teacher.
I am very excited for another year as a Lovejoy Leopard!  Before coming to Lovejoy, I taught eighth grade Spanish for 12 years in Plano ISD.
 
I graduated from the University of Texas with my Bachelor's degree in Secondary Education and received my Master's degree in Spanish Literature from the the University of Salamanca in Spain.
 
I was born in Mexico City and grew up there speaking Spanish.  We go back several times a year, since all my family and my husband's family live there still. We actually have a summer house in San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato.  You probably going to hear a lot about of my stories and anecdotes from that beautiful, colonial, colorful pebble-stone street city. 
 
I being married for 21years. My husband Rodrigo Vizcaino, is a hydraulic engineer in Dallas. Together we have three awesome kids, Sebastian 17 who is going to be a Senior at LHS, Natalia 12 who will be a 7th grader here at Willow and our furry son, Diego a Miniature Schnauzer.  :O)

On my free time, I enjoy running outside, and train for 10k, 15k, and half marathons races.  I love cooking and entertaining, really enjoy to travel specially to different countries that speak different languages... love the challenge! This summer we are planning to go all around Europe to celebrate our 21st Wedding Anniversary, and our 46th Birthdays. 
 
Just like you, when I was a teen I had to learn a second language in my case was English. My plan for you  this year is to show you the beautiful Spanish language, we will learn, explore, and enjoy the culture, definitely we will taste the delicious food, and the most important part....we will have lots of fun working together to have an Amazing and a very Successful year in our fabulous Spanish 1 Class!  
 
I have a lot of amazing things planned for this year, and I can't wait to share them with each of you, because IN OUR YEAR TOGETHER YOU ARE NOT JUST A KID IN MY CLASS LIST..... YOU BECOME A PART OF MY HEART!
