get to know our teachers

Why do you think a bilingual education is important for young children?
My belief is that children who can communicate well with people from other cultures are the ones who encounter greater advantages in life. Students in a bilingual environment, similar to UDT have shown to perform better on projects that require problem solving, decision making and multi-tasking. So, I invite you to come visit us, and experience first hand the benefits of a bilingual education. You will hear children learning sets of new words and phrases, while becoming immersed in the Latinx culture and community.
What is special for me is, visiting each classroom and watching special bonds form between the children and their teacher(s).
I love popping into classrooms, to hear the robust sounds of children engaged in learning, and watching how active little bodies can be.
