Welcome to Mr. Torralba's 3rd 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 transferred 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 graduated last Dec. (2018) with my Specialist in Instructional Technology!!!
I will be starting my 11th year teaching elementary school this upcoming 2019-2020 school-year. I taught 2nd grade my first two years at JM Odom in Colquitt Co. When I joined the Baker family 8 years ago, I taught three years 1st grade and 2nd grade for the past 5 years. Now, I'm looping with my class to 3rd!!!
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.
