Lucero Rodriguez


1st Grade Dual Language Teacher

In her short time at Namaste, Ms. Lucero has already done a variety of jobs. She started off in both the dual and monolingual Kindergarten rooms as the teacher assistant in January of 2018. She then proceeded to lead guided reading groups in second grade. In March of 2018, she became the temporary substitute for the dual language third grade class and now has her very own class of her own in the Green Room teaching first grade dual language. So far, first grade has been Ms. Lucero's favorite grade to teach. She loves being able to influence students early on to encourage their excitement and curiosity for learning.
