Ms. Mattes

Hola! My name is Ms. Gabrielle Mattes and I'm the Spanish teacher at Emerson and Fischer Elementary Schools.  I'm from Palatine, IL and went to the University of Dayton in Ohio to study Spanish and Foreign Language Education.  After graduation, I moved to Spain to teach English for two years.  I love to travel and have been to 20 countries! My favorite thing about teaching is showing students the benefits of learning another language.  It's not just a subject in school, it's a skill! 


I'm looking forward to working with your children and I know it will be a very successful year! I've linked the vocabulary lists for each grade and the sites to quizlet to practice the classroom vocabulary.
