Ariel Gugudan - Spanish


My name is Ariel Gugudan and this is my second year at Bancroft Elementary and I am so excited to be a part of this team again! I have been teaching since 2013 after I received a degree in Spanish Studies and Education from Dominican University in River Forest, Illinois.  For 3 years I taught Spanish 1 and 2 at a high school in Nashville, Tennessee before I relocated to Minneapolis. 

I am so excited to be a part of the Spanish program here at Bancroft. I believe that it is incredibly important for students to learn multiple languages, and I believe in a wholistic, communication based, approach to language learning. 

This year is going to be amazing and I cannot wait to see how much we all learn together. Please contact me at if have any questions or comments!
