Welcome to Kindergarten ! My name is Mrs. Madruga and I teach the Spanish Extended Foreign Language Class. In this program, students have the opportunity to learn how to speak, read, and write in Spanish and English using the Florida Standards.
I have been a teacher at CME ever since the school first opened its doors in August of 1999 and part of the Gator family. I'm an FIU graduate with a Bachelor's of Science Degree in Elementary Education Grades 1-6 and Early Childhood Education Grades Primary-3rd . I am also English Language Learner Endorsed and have continued my education by attending classes in the following areas: Spanish EFL, Reading, Writing, Math, Science and Exceptional Student Education.
I was born in Cuba but came to this country at the age of 5. I lived in Chicago, Ilinois until 1975 when I came to Miami. I am a mother of 3 and grandmother. Family is important to me and a great part of who I am. I love the outdoors, exercise and physical activities. I enjoyed traveling the East and Mid United States in my RV but would like to continue my travels on the west coast. I hope to visit Europe one day especially the country of Spain where all my grandparents where born.
