Mrs. Mercedes Asqui

¡Welcome to Señora Asqui's class web page!






Hola.  ¡Bienvenidos a mi página!  ¡Welcome to my web page!


I am from Quito, Ecuador. I came to New Jersey to work at West Orange Public Schools in 2001. I am a World Language teacher and an ESL teacher too.  I worked as a Spanish teacher at St. Cloud, Hazel and Mt. Pleasant Elementary schools.  Currently, I teach Spanish at Redwood and Mt. Pleasant Elementary Schools. I also teach ESL to parents of Washington school.


I love teaching languages and I love to innovate and create lessons to engage and motivate my students in the learning of Spanish.  I believe that education is a commitment among teachers, parents and students so that students become successful at school.
