¡Hola!-Hello, my name is Señora VanDeraa.  This will be my nineteenth year teaching all levels of Spanish in Mesa Public Schools. I am a former Mountain Lion and consider myself fortunate to be teaching at my alma mater! I am a graduate of Northern Arizona University with a Bachelor of Science in Spanish Education and a Masters in Bilingual Multicultural Education.  I have studied abroad in both Mexico and Spain.  Every year I am excited to bring my experiences into the classroom.  The summer of 2019 I went on the adventure of a lifetime to Peru! Myself, Sr. Muñoz, and fourteen RMHS students were blessed to travel to South America through a private company, Walking Tree Travel. Click on the slideshow and read about our journey. I am certain this school year will be a positive learning experience for both your child and myself.
