Hi my name is Blanca Alvarado. This is my fifth year as a teacher at St. Adalbert. I graduated from IUSB in 2013 after student teaching in 1st and 3rd grade here at St. Adalbert. I also completed an English Language Learners certification course in 2015. Prior to being a teacher, I was a catechist on Saturdays for 5 years and enjoyed every minute of it. I moved to South Bend 9 years ago and I was able to attend and graduate from Washington High School. Growing up I always knew I wanted to be a teacher and I couldn't imagine myself being in any other place or teaching any other children than the ones that I have now. I love this school and the people that fill it's hallways. Thank you for allowing me to teach and be part of your children's lives.
