I am so grateful to have discovered my vocation as a teacher as it allows me to share experiences I had growing up with my favorite people - “niños”. I was born in the beautiful country of Perú. Before becoming a teacher, I studied International Business. When I moved to the United States I learned about the Waldorf philosophy, which has similarities with my childhood education. I studied Early Childhood Teaching at Lifeways North America in California and Early Child Education at Santa Rosa Junior College. At Jardin Mariposa (Butterfly Garden), I adore sharing my native language and Peruvian culture with small children and families. My goal is to bring love and joy to the children as I introduce the Spanish language to them in a fun, safe and nurturing environment.
