Plantiko¡Hola!  I’m Mrs. Plantiko, and I am WCA’s Spanish teacher.  I will also be teaching the Freshman Success class this year.  This is my 6th year at WCA and I love it!  Besides my virtual classes I enjoy my homeroom calls and field trips.  When I’m not at school I like to practice yoga, travel, walk, and go for bike rides.  I also love trivia!  I’m looking forward to a great school year and can’t wait to get to know all of you!
