Mrs. Shirley Rodriguez
Hello! ¡Hola! My name is Shirley Rodriguez. I am a bilingual kindergarten teacher for the dual language program here at Highlands Elementary. I graduated from Kaplan University with a specialization in Early Childhood Education; I also have a Bachelor's degree in Literature from the University of Puerto Rico. I have been married for 27 years and have 3 wonderful children and 2 beautiful grandsons. This will be my sixth year working as a kindergarten teacher at Highlands Elementary and I love every single minute of it. My love for teaching has been with me since I was a little girl. I grew up in a family of educators that taught me that the most important things in this life are the things that help us grow and flourish. I am looking forward to help and see my students grow and flourish in kindergarten and beyond! This year will be full of experiences and fun activities that will help them discover the exciting world of learning.
