Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Valbuena

Hey there, My name is Jenny Valbuena I am from Bogota Colombia. I have been teaching Dual Language for over 8 years to little ones. I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in childhood education from the Pontificia Universidad Javeriana in Bogota, Colombia and a TESOL/TESL/TEFL program from Oxford Seminars in Chicago, IL and have also completed a specialization module on Teaching English to Children. 

It is my first year as a Dual Language teacher here in North Carolina. I recently moved to the United States, it has been a roller coaster of emotions for me and my husband, getting an apartment, a new job and starting from zero is quite challenging, but I have found amazing people around town and that gives me hope. I love nature (mostly Flowers) hiking, long walks, and over all traveling.

I also enjoy dancing, music, concerts, ballet, and teather shows, and off course a trip to the library once a week.
