Adriana Contreras recieved her teaching credential in 2003 from California State University, Chico.  


Right after graduating Adriana was hired to work at a Spanish Immersion School in McKinleyville, CA located in the north coast.  She taught there for a total of 12 years teaching Spanish to Kindergarten, First Grade, and Fourth Grade students.  In August 2016, Adriana moved to Greeley and taught at Salida del Sol Academy.  Adriana is very excited to start her 14th year of teaching here at Butler Elementary.


Adriana Contreras was born and raised in Corning, CA.  Spanish was her first language and later picked up English from preschool and the neighbor kids.  Her parents knew it was important for her to keep her home language so at home only Spanish was spoken and school was where she would speak English.  This helped her become bilingual.
