    Niagara Falls, July 2019

    I am Heather Puerto, and I teach 6th and 7th grade Spanish at Wydown.  I have two daughters, Sofia (a freshman at UMSL) and Lucy (a sophomore at CHS).  We live with our two pups, Winnie and Apollo, and 2 cats (Duke and Ruthie).

    This is my 21st year teaching Spanish at Wydown.  I spent a semester living in Mexico in college.  I also took a one-year leave from teaching, and took my daughters to live in Cozumel, Mexico for a year (2016-2017). It was an amazing year, and allowed them to live near extended family and really improve their Spanish.

    My favorite thing to do is travel.  I have taken students to Costa Rica (2006), Mexico (2012), Peru (2016), and Ecuador (2019).  I have also traveled to Spain and Cuba.  I hope that list can continue to grow, now that the pandemic is ALMOST over - we are ready to travel again!
