I am sorry I am trying to find a job through this medium. I am from South America, grew up there and went to catholic school there. Spanish is my mother tongue. I am working at King elementary school as a tutor-interpreter in the Spanish language. I give Spanish classes for 21st Century. This will be my 9th year working at the Des Moines Public school. I will like to work at your school teaching Spanish, I am a good teacher even though I have not a degree. My mother and my grandmother were teachers. I was once interviewed at St Anthony and was accepted to work there as a teacher and was ready to start but my car at that time was not adequately ready and missed the opportunity to work with you. I will appreciate if you give me another chance to work at the school. I am leasing a car so not problem about transportation. Thank you very much, Rosa Augusta Rodriguez BCOW (Bilingual Community Oureach Worker) you can reach me at rosasep@hotmail.com

St. Anthony Catholic School is located just south of the Des Moines down town area. Our school is the only Language (Spanish) Immersion school in the Des Moines area. This wonderful program begins in kindergarten and continues through 8th grade. Give your child a gift of being fluent in two languages by the time they are in fifth grade.
