Hi. My name is Ana Aquilera and I am excited to be your child's Spanish instructor. I am a blessed mother of two wonderful boys, both who are Notre Dame prodigies. I have been excited to be part of this community as a parent for the past 14 years and feel honored that I was chosen to be an instructor. I graduated from San Jose State in 1995 and have held many different positions after graduating. This is the most exciting one so far.

Blessings NDS students and families. I began my teaching journey at NDS in 2006, sharing art instruction and creative thought processes. I have a background in Fine Arts and have been an artist all of my life. Creating art and teaching art is my life. My art lessons are linked with CA Standards for the Visual Arts and Notre Dame S.L.E.s (Student Learning Expectations). This year we will also have art projects based on the Catholic Virtues.

Projects are designed to be grade-appropriate in content and skill, as well as enriching for the student. I received my B.A in Fine Arts with an emphasis on Painting/Drawing/Graphic Design from CSU Chico. At my home, I maintain a studio where I specialize in ceramics and painting.

As a lifelong learner, I continue to participate in online classes and workshops to learn new skills that I am able to share with my students. Art classes meet once a week, grades K – 8, where we dive into our projects with joy and excitement!
