Jesenia Abreu - World Language Teacher

  • Back-to-School Night

    ¡Hola estudiantes! My name is Sra. Abreu, and I am so excited to join the Willard community as a Spanish teacher for the 2023 to 2024 school. This is my 3rd yr. teaching Spanish to middle schoolers and first yr at Willard! I absolutely love my heritage and learning about different cultures, and I am looking forward to teaching and showing you how fun learning a new language can be!  

    I was born and raised in a small city in NJ, but both of my parents and family are from the beautiful island of the Dominican Republic! As a child I always loved traveling there and getting more acquainted with my culture! Having lived only 15 minutes from NYC as a child, helped me learn to appreciate different cultures from around the world and how to celebrate our differences! I have been living in South Riding with my husband and 3 children, all LCPS students, for 15yrs. I obtained my Business Management and Child Development degree from Fairleigh Dickinson University and my Graduate teaching credentials and Spanish Prek-12 Endorsement from Liberty University. I've had the pleasure of working in various educational roles, such as being a formal 6th grade Spanish teacher at Prince William County Schools, Childcare Director, and PreK teacher. In addition, I worked as a Child Development consultant and was fortunate enough to observe and mentor early childhood professionals as they work with children ages 0-5yrs. Finally, I am grateful to have work as a Bilingual child assessor for the VDOE state-funded Virginia Preschool Initiative (VPI). 

    When I am not in school, you can find me at the track watching my 12th grader run or at the ballpark watching my 8th grader´s softball games! If you´re lucky, you might just spot me at a playground racing down a slide with my busy 6 yr. old! I love to dance, listen to the sounds of the waves crashing, spending time with my family, going on walks, traveling, and reading!

    It's going to be a great year and I can’t wait to get to know each of my students!
