She graduated from the Colombian Institute for Preschool Education in 1980, focusing on literacy, mathematics and learning disabilities with a Montessori approach. She taught at various prestigious schools in the capital and taught over 320 students the basics of reading and writing. Over the years she took several courses on new techniques with which to teach mathematics, literacy, art, physical education ,body Expression and even went to Sweden for a year to learn about their education system! She came to the United States in 1997 with her daughter Juliana and has been working as a childcare professional over the past 23 years. She has had the opportunity to teach many children Spanish through everyday interactions and activities. She is very excited to reenter a more formal educational environment and is looking forward to meeting all of the Young Linguist Academy families interested in raising their children bilingually. She would like to thank Young Linguist Academy for welcoming her into the school and can’t wait to get to know all the children even more!
