Hello, My name is Aymé Almendarez Espino. I am a third generation Chicana (Mexican American). I teach Middle School. I have been a teacher at Aurora Charter School for 8 years. I am a graduate of the University of Minnesota where I earned a B.S. in teaching and later, a Masters of Education. I love working with the students and families of Aurora. It gives me great joy to see my students learn and grow over time.
In my free time I enjoy reading novels and poetry. I also like bike riding around the lakes and watching movies. One of my favorite things to do is spend time in the kitchen, preparing delicious meals to enjoy with my family.
