My name is Elizabeth Barrios Mesa I am the Fisrt Grade Spanish Immersion teacher and I am from Bogotá, Colombia in South America.

I grew up in a blessed family. My parents are so kind and my young brother and my older sister are my best friends.

I am married to a great man. His name is Alexander and, I am a proud mother of three wonderful children, Sergio who is 14, Nicolás who is 9 and David who is 7 years old. 

I love spending time with my family, reading at the library, watching movies, and playing in the park. 

God gave me the opportunity to come here with my family and I am so happy teaching Spanish here in US, and it's great being part of Hopewell Elementary School.
