Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Urquijo

My name is Idelsi Urquijo and I have been a teacher’s assistant at Yates Mill for 15 years. I’m originally from Cuba which means I can fluently speak Spanish and English! I’m married to my wonderful husband, have two girls, and a dog named Simpson. In 2002, we moved from New Jersey (Go Yankees!) to North Carolina. We love it here! I currently work with 1st graders and enjoy watching them grow academically- from learning vowels to being able to read by the end of the year. I look forward to another great year at Yates Mill with my amazing coworkers and an awesome group of kids!
