Mrs. Marcela Alva
My name is Marcela Alva. I am from Mexico City where I gained a degree in Elementary Education and a Master degree in Special Education specializing in Learning Disabilities.
I have been working in Education for many years and now I am proud to be a bilingual and bicultural teacher in this country.
Ten years ago, I came into this country to support my husband’s relocation and follow his USA international position; I worked hard to achieve my certifications here, so I could continue with my career as well my personal & professional development.
While I was getting my certificate, I started working as a Spanish Teacher with children and adults. After that, I worked as a Substitute teacher in Mundelein. Then, I worked at JumpStart as a Parent Coordinator in District 75. I also, worked as an Outreach coordinator at Brushwood Center and doing translations. I started working at Round Lake School District on 2016.
I enjoy seeing my students come to school every day ready to learn
