Family Programs Director and Teacher
I am originally from Monterrey, Mexico and grew up using Spanish and English interchangeably. Needless to say, being fluent in two languages has opened many doors for me.
In an effort to provide my own son and other families a fun activity to do in Spanish, I created a program called Aprende Cantando. I taught it for nearly 3 years at Heartsong Music before branching out and starting Semillitas where I now teach CANTA.
Semillitas de Español is a very personal endeavor for me. Helping my own son to become bilingual has been a journey of creativity, dedication, patience, and discovery. Recognizing how challenging it is to raise a bilingual child, it’s truly a pleasure for me to share those same little seeds of Spanish with other families.
As a teacher, I am continually amazed at how children learn and develop their language skills. I find it fascinating to witness children’s ability to retain vocabulary, to decipher meaning, grammar, and sentence structure. More than anything though, I love that children are excited and willing to learn anything as long as its fun.
