My name is Vanessa Avalos and I am the Bilingual Community Outreach Worker at Capitol View. I work with ELL families and students and do the Spanish interpreting for our school. This is my third year at Capitol View and I have gotten to know our families very well which is very important to me to build those relationships.I look forward to meeting and building those relationships with our new families this year!

My family is from Mexico but I was born in Santa Ana, California. My family and I moved to Marshalltown, Iowa when I was 5 years old, so I consider myself to be an Iowa girl. I graduated from Marshalltown Community College in 2011 with an Associate's Degree in Criminal Justice. I then received my Bachelor's Degree in Spanish from the University of Northern Iowa in 2013. My husband, Juan, and I have two boys, Ryan who is three and Liam who is 5 months.
