Director / Principal


Dr. Jude Vales

My name is Jude Vales and I am delighted to join Adams Spanish Immersion. I believe that school is a place where all students can succeed, regardless of their socioeconomic backgrounds or learning abilities. I am committed to supporting a culturally inclusive climate in which students, staff, family members, and other stakeholders feel welcome, valued, heard, and safe.

I spent the last twelve years working in the Twin Cities as a Spanish teacher and a school administrator. My educational background spans linguistics, film, teaching, and educational leadership. 

I look forward to working with you all. Please reach out anytime with questions and suggestions.

Assistant Principal, Geoff Freeman


Geoff Freeman

¡Saludos, Comunidad de Adams! My name is Geoff Freeman, and I am proud to serve as the assistant principal of Adams Spanish Immersion School. I have worked in the Saint Paul Public School District since 2013 as an Elementary Teacher and Content Coach. 

I earned my bachelor's degree in social studies education at Hamline University, my master's degree in Montessori Education at the University of Wisconsin River Falls, and my administrative license from the University of Minnesota Twin Cities.

I am especially proud to be a graduate of St Paul Public Schools and parent of two daughters, Mirabelle (17) and Phoebe (9), who attend SPPS. We cherish the time my oldest daughter spent at Adams Spanish Immersion!

In my spare time, I enjoy music, good food, and time spent outdoors with friends and family.

I hope to serve the Adams community so that students, teachers, and families feel welcome and get the support they need. Please feel free to reach out to me at any time, and I will be happy to connect.
