Jessica Castro-Buelna


I was born and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico. My parents are from Cananea, Sonora and moved to the United States about 35 years ago. I completed my studies at Western New Mexico University and graduated with my Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education. In my spare time, I love to travel to Mexico to see my family as well as traveling all around the world. As I think about my school years, I remember how difficult my schooling was due to the language barrier I had. The only language I spoke was Spanish when I was in my elementary, and it was very difficult. Now, I am an advocate for those students who have difficulty with learning the English language as well as for those students who would love to learn the Spanish language and culture. My goal is to complete my Master’s Degree in Elementary Education.
