Welcome to Mr. Torralba's 2nd Grade's Website!
HELLO......My name is Emanuel Torralba. I was born in Mexico and came to the States when I was 12 years old. I lived in Valdosta, GA for 12 years. There, I attended Brooks Co. Middle and graduated from Brooks Co. High School as an Honor Graduate in 2002. After graduating from high school, I decided to attend Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College where I obtained my A.S. in Early Childhood Ed. and later transfered to Valdosta State where I graduated in 2008 with my Bachelor's Degree. I received my ESOL Endorsement from Cobb Co.'s RESA Program in 2012 and after taking a 6-year school-break, I decided to enroll in the KSU's Masters' Program. I'm happy to say that I now have my Master's in Early Childhood Education as well as a certification in Gifted Education. In addition, I will graduate Dec. 2018 with my Specialist in Instructional Technology!!!
This 2017-18 school year will be my 10th year teaching elementary school. I taught 2nd grade my first two years at JM Odom in Colquitt Co. and then three years 1st grade here at Baker. This school year will be my fifth year teaching 2nd grade here at Baker.
Some of the things I enjoy doing include drawing, walking at the park/beach, and playing tennis. I also enjoy spending time with my family as much as sitting on my back porch sipping on a cup of coffee on a Saturday morning.
I love teaching and I know there's always something new that I can learn to pass on to my students.
Parents, please, visit my blog frequently as I will post important information on a regular basis.
