Meet Our Teachers
She is married with two kids and has been teaching dual immersion programs for a number of years now.
Flor came to USA in 2016, this academic year 2018-2019 is her first full academic year and she is bursting with excitement at the opportunity to help children learning Spanish.
She absolutely believes that a bilingual education opens a new world for kids and parents. She is excited about being a part of the Spanish Academy family.
She lives in West Midtown with her husband and her 4 year old daughter. She has a Bachelor Degree in Social Communication.
She is been a photographer since she was 16 years old. Her true passion is children and family photography.
Innocence in children has always inspired her. Sharing her native language is something
that fills her soul with happiness.
Her decision to become a teacher was influence by her father, who was an amazing educator. This admiration for him made her follow his steps.
After finishing her college degree in Spain, She moved to the United States to teach Spanish to an American family. That was a big opportunity for her since She could improve her teaching skills and English at the same time.
Working with children of different ages helped her develop different teaching methods and strategies. Her creativity is really useful to design fun and entertaining activities for young children. It is very pleasing to see them enjoying and learning simultaneously.
“It is my goal to combine my experience and knowledge with my ability to learn new things to improve as a professional educator. Teaching is not only a career, it is my passion.”
In 2002 she graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Education. The reasons why she decided to study the Bachelor’s Degree in pre-school education is because she wanted to be part of the training of children. She enjoyed to be able to teach children and at the same time learned from them as well.
She loves languages because language gives you social skills, the opportunity to learn about a different culture and most importantly gives you the ability to solve problems easily. My goal is that they learn Spanish while having a good time!
Always with a special interest in language education. Being a mother of 2 has allowed her to understand and enjoy teaching Spanish to preschoolers. Simple perfect match!
